Be part of the 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?  

Humans are social creatures and we have a fundamental need to connect and interact with each other.  

“There is no question that due to the COVID-19 pandemic the last year has been tough for some, and even tougher for others.  We have been separated, segregated and yet, somehow, we have continued to find ways to connect with one and other,” said COTA Queensland Chief Executive, Mark Tucker (pictured, below).

“In order to feel connected we need to feel seen, heard and valued. One way you can be seen is by contributing to the Bigger Picture – an intergenerational, cross cultural digital art project powered by Queenslanders.”

The Bigger Picture is a photomosaic made up of lots of smaller pictures and you’re invited to take part and help shape it. 

Getting involved is easy:

1) Nominate an image for the BIG Picture, this will be the hero image that the smaller images will be used to create. Submissions close 31 August. 

2) Vote for your favourite BIG Picture between 1-30 September. 

3) Contribute by taking a selfie of yourself, or with a friend or loved one, on your phone or tablet and submit online. Submissions close 17 October. 

The Bigger Picture will be released on 24 October 2021, just in time for Grandparents Day. 

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 Be Connected partner.
