Experience The Bigger Picture in Leiden

On 16 September 2017, visitors of Leiden’s Night of Arts and Science (Nacht van Kunst en Kennis) have the chance to experience The Bigger Picture: stories behind the frame.

HumanityX’s interactive installation will be present all night at the tech innovation corner at the Museum of Antiquities (Museum van Oudheden).

The Bigger Picture brings together the worlds of photography, data analytics and storytelling in a compelling visual platform. Using data visualisations to explain which events led to the creation of award-winning photos, audiences are encouraged to rethink the way they look at images in the news. The Bigger Picture is a collaboration between HumanityX, the World Press Photo Foundation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Q42 and Fabrique.

The Night of Arts and Science is a festival in the historic centre of the city of Leiden, where visitors can enjoy music, interactive experiments, theatrical plays, lectures, modern dance and comedy during the night. Find out more about our event on the Night of Arts and Science website (in Dutch).
