The National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation of Denmark (DIF) gathered 600 people from the Danish sports world for 3 days in March 2015 to debate the present and future of Danish sports. The headline was “Must sport save the world? – Or must the world save sport?”. The participants and keynote speakers discussed challenges, opportunities, goals and dreams. Bigger Picture was on the spot to catch as much as possible on paper. Look at the result here, click on the picture to enlarge:
The drawing is 2.5 x 6 meters, and you’ll find a visual summary of the event along the three sides of the drawing. In the middle of the drawing the essences of the 25 group sessions are pictured, and in the top of the drawing near the horizon the ideas for the future of sports are located.
Once a day we gave the audience an update on the progression of the event walking them through the details of the drawing.
During the 25 sessions, we worked together with a team of “knowledge collectors”, who helped us provide content to the drawing. As you can see on the next photos, the collectors filled out templates during the different sessions and returned with the main points and ideas, which we incorporated in the drawing making them visible for the rest of the participants.
After the event, the drawing was scanned and mailed to all the participants making it possible for them to relive the event as well as enable then to engage others in dialogue around the key points.
