Age of wonder is a festival of our times: difficult to capture in one sentence. It is probably best described as a string of longer TED-talks about big ideas, artistic experiments and mythic stories. The international programme takes from art, science and technology and consists of lectures, films and documentaries, installations, performances and more.

We live in interesting times. Our rapidly changing world makes us dream uncertainly of both utopian societies and nightmarish scenarios. We want to reinvent the world, society and our lives. For that, we need to look beyond our own frames of reference and specialisations.

During the festival Age of Wonder, we will zoom out at our spot on the timeline and look to the past and the future. With a distinctive programme focussing on bold visions and big ideas. In so doing, Age of Wonder takes the essence and the existence of the 100-year-old NatLab as a starting point: a space where, detached from the outside world and the issues of the day, you can open your mind full of wonder to insights old and new.
