An Ocean of Possibilities
 

31 October to 28 December 2014 
Featuring over 200 photos of about 30 artists from 20 different countries, An Ocean of Possibilities focuses on social developments. The exhibition turns the spotlight on the people who challenge themselves in search of unconventionalities and change their own course. They may be individuals, small communities and businesses who set out to realise a better future, not only for themselves but also for others. The exhibition will be presented at ArtScience Museum after the Noorderlicht International Photofestival.
