Event description
On the auspicious occasion of scientist Annie Jump Cannon’s birthday, I’m thrilled to share an exciting update about this project named in her honor.

After two years of R&D, we are over the moon that Jump!Star has been awarded an NEA Our Town grant, and this celestial celebration will inaugurate in Kansas thanks to partnerships with Symphony in the Flint Hills, Harvester Arts, Chamber Music at the Barn, and Connie Bonfy. I love these folks, and this project just wouldn’t happen without them.

So, what is Jump!Star? As some of you may know, in about a thousand years Earth will have a different North Star. Because of a slight wobble in the planet’s rotation (axial precession) the North Star or “pole star” is not fixed; like most other things in life that seem certain, it changes! Jump!Star celebrates that change by working with communities to invent the cultural traditions that will commemorate it.

In the next few weeks we will be sharing more details, including who Annie was and what she accomplished, the badass science that inspired this, dirt on all the members of our mind-blowing creative team, photos and video of what we’ve been building, and much more. Get the whole story by following our trajectory on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and by visiting .

Thanks for your support.
To the stars!
