2023 will be here before we know it ...

From Björn Voss, for the IPS Planetarium Centennial team

IPS’s new project to prepare a year of celebrations for the centennial of the planetarium starting in 2023 is progressing well. Many ideas for activities during the Centennial were suggested during two workshops and a meeting at IPS2018 and at the annual conference of GDP, the Society of the German-Speaking Planetsriums affiliate.

The ideas and suggestions on this canvas are, as of now, presented in just the way they were proposed, unfiltered and unweighted. Please check them out and comment or vote on them! Also, if you have further ideas, please post them to the canvas or let us know by email at

While you think about additional activities for the centennial year, please keep in mind that the celebration is not just about the events of 1923-1925. It is meant to celebrate the entire 100 years that have passed since then, focusing on all aspects of our business, and thus it is also meant to be vendor-neutral.

Most importantly, if you would like to contribute to one of the projects, you are more than welcome to work with us on your favorite ideas; please get in touch with us!
