Over the past approximately six months our team have been hard at work developing a concept and programme using geodesic domes as an immersive pop-up space for outreach events and youth engagement.
In collaboration with Maar Koodjal we recently delivered for Naidoc Week a 360 degree immersive cultural experience in our Globalactive Geodesic Projection Dome that we have built out of largely recycled materials. The “Reverse Dreamtime” story which featured in the projection dome is a creation of cultural educator and CEO of Maar Koodjal Dennis Simmons.
Construction of the Globalactive Geodesic Projection Dome was completed at the enkel space in Fremantle. enkel is a collective of changemakers based in Perth that believe that we need new approaches and more people to address the problems of today and tomorrow. The new enkel space will be a dynamic new ideas and social innovation centre for Western Australia.
Globalactive, an affiliate of enkel, was proud to be one of the first collectives to make use of the enkel space with our Geodesic Projection Dome project.
Programmes run through Globalactive incorporate high-tech elements and unique spaces for compelling, all immersive storytelling experiences. Our focus is on sharing underrepresented and alternative perspectives. The ongoing development, visioning and implementation of our programmes are a co-creative process between Globalactive and each community we engage with.
This engagement is built on a foundation that follows proper cultural protocols and authority held by the Traditional Owner’s of Nyoongar Boodjar. Geodesic domes do not belong to any culture, they are an offering from the late American systems theorist Buckminster Fuller.
Maar Koodjal and Globalactive share a vision and set of values that honours the ancient wisdom of our ancestors whilst engaging in fun and creative solutions for the present. Together we co-create a thriving future where our children and grandchildren are nurtured by, and in turn, nurture a healthy connection to country and our planet.
