Attention all Space Cadets! 

You’ve just discovered a galaxy far, far away and you're about to take off to explore it, but there are many big challenges ahead.

As part of your astronaut flight training, you will need to develop a design code that is unique to you, to decide how you want to 'be' in space.

Stand on a cosmic node and think...will you be courageous, playful, calm, curious, fearless or ethical? The list goes on!

Set in Adelaide Botanic Garden, this immersive, self-directed experience invites you to explore and imagine ways of 'being' – both in and out of this world.

** Space suits welcome, but not essential.

To enhance your experience head to The Being Code to find out more and to download the app.

There is a small space between a happening and our response in which we get to choose how to be.

When you find yourself in a challenging situation, use your design code to decide how to be.

"Its a way of imagining how you want to be and be it," Oscar 10 years old.

"This is an opportunity for me to talk to my future self," Luka 15 years old.
