Infoversum / Marc Winters

The Infoversum is housed on Ebbingekwartier in the center of Groningen, the leading creative district of Groningen. Infoversum is a sustainable building, and is an innovative element in the skyline of Groningen. The unique design with the white steel sphere and corten steel skin structure give a new impetus to the downtown architecture.

You are special, unique (3D) - movies projected on a screen of 20 meters around in a dome: an overwhelming total experience. Infoversum is the first Full 3D Dome Theatre in the Netherlands and one of only 20 of its kind in the world. The Infoversum also curates exhibitions and are becoming equipped from a (combination of) cultural, artistic and scientific perspective. Infoversum aims to provide educational and visually attractive exhibitions for young and old. Schools can also access educational programs of all levels. Infoversum does collaborations with pupils and students to provide a platform for education focused on art, culture, media and business.

The idea for Infoversum comes from Professor Edwin A. Valentine, professor of astronomical information technology at the University of Groningen. From his passion to spread knowledge created the innovative concept. Edwin A. Valentine involved the University of Groningen, City of Groningen and GasTerra as partners in a common goal: accessible dissemination of scientific knowledge through image and imagination, packed in a crossover of entertainment, science and art.
