Bioluminescence is an intriguing phenomenon as it can be experienced only in pure darkness. It is only when we are away from the brightness of the day, when we let of our own light sources, only then we can notice the mysterious shining of the micro-organisms. For reasons still fully understood, some microalgae, bacteria and other living organisms produce light in various wavelengths (white, green, blue). Light is part of their beings, they use their own energy sources to shine. Their dedication can only be observed in darkness.
We bring together two bioluminescent organisms: P. fusiformis and Photobacterium Phosphereum in a labyrinth designed to trap you. Immersed in pure darkness, your only escape is through bioluminescence. You need to communicate with these organisms and uncover their mysteries. Remember they are alive!

We value high quality content, thus all lectures and talks are given by expert scientists or established artists. All workshops are hands-on, i.e., you will have the occasion to do scientific procedures. We provide all materials, as well as the necessary instructions. Our workshops are open to anyone, regardless of their educational background. We welcome participants under 18 yrs old, but we prefer to be informed ahead and have an adult that accompanies them. We welcome any donations at any time, as well as collaborations. We always have tea and snacks (free), beer (2€) and a great community to connect to.
