Here is the link to the final conference for the GSO4SCHOOL Erasmus project. It starts at ca. 1:24.
The 2023 Global Science Opera will be inspired by the data and images collected by the WEBB telescope.
Where does creativity come from? Is it in the brain? In my body’s muscle-memory? Is it in my heart or my soul? How does my experience influence who I become as a person? Is creativity a special talent or something everyone has? How can I use my creativity actively? Where are our memories stored? And what happens when they start to fade?
In Creavolution, students from around 20 countries have collaborated with teachers, scientists and artists in creating and performing scenes all connected to the fascinating creative human mind. The Global Science Opera is an educational initiative, trans-disciplinary between the science- and the arts-field. It is a creative collaboration that defies national, cultural and linguistic borders.
Creavolution is a new made-up word giving associations to Creativity, evolution and revolution. It refers to how creativity is needed to evolve, and how the creative mind is a revolutionary powerful tool. Creavolution is the opposite of avolution: a total lack of motivation that makes it hard to get anything done, even simple, everyday tasks.

The 2022 Global Science Opera premieres on November 20th, at 2 pm cet on a computer near you.
Brazil premiered its very first Science Opera on June 30th, 2022. Students from three different municipalities participated, having created and performing stories connected to time: past, present and future. You can the opera here.
In the last week of June, hundreds of teachers, students, administrators and artists in Brazil attended workshops, presentations or meet-and-greet-sessions with the GSO coordinator. The three municipalities Santa Maria Madalena, Sao Francisco de Itabapoana and Sao Joao de Barra have invested large in education for their students by training their teachers in the GSO methodology and sustainable theatre-production. The week culminated with the very first Brazil Science Opera.
Here are just a few photos from the ten days.

Here is the poster for CREAVOLUTION! It is a joint effort by students in Oslo, Norway, who have embroidered the design.
If you are participating in this years opera, please send us your logo, so we can add it to the poster.
We had a very exciting presentation of the GSO for the “StoryLab” to employees at NASA. I am sure you can imagine how thrilled we were to get this opportunity! The recording is here. We’re hoping to engage in dialogue with NASA in order to get inspiration for our 2023 production.
We wish to host a contest for the poster, open for all participating students to make suggestions for what the poster should look like.
The winning suggestion will then be worked further with by a professional visual/graphic artist. Suggestions for the poster will be included in the Eco-art Gallery, and some of them will be shown in the opera.
