An intergenerational,
cross cultural digital art project powered by Queenslanders.

In order to feel connected we need to feel seen, heard and valued. One way you can be seen is by being a part Bigger Picture.

Like the saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words”, well what if we created a picture out of a thousand pictures.  Can you imagine the stories it could tell?  

Sponsored by The Senior Newspaper, the Bigger Picture is an intergenerational, cross cultural digital art project aimed at highlighting the diversity of older Queenslanders and increasing intergenerational connections through the shared use of technology by creating a photomosaic. That’s a picture made up of lots of different people.

Getting involved is easy. 

  1. Vote for your favourite BIG picture 17 October 2021.
  2. Contribute to the Bigger picture by submitting a selfie of yourself, or with a friend or loved one. Be sure to submit your images by Sunday 17 October 2021.

Need a hand?   

This is a great opportunity spend some time with your family or friends by asking them to give you a hand. You can also ask your local library or our Be Connected partner for some support.
