In samenwerking met Europeana, het Nederlands Instituut voor Beeld en Geluid en de Nederlandse ambassades verspreid over Europa heeft ontwerpbureau DROPSTUFF.nl de #BigArtRide gelanceerd. Iedereen kan deelnemen aan dit nieuwe cultureel media project.De #BigArtRide is een virtuele fietstocht langs cultureel erfgoed:
"Brought to the public by Dutch design studio DROPSTUFF.nl in collaboration with Europeana, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and Embassies of the Kingdom of The Netherlands across Europe, #BigArtRide - the European Tour 2016, is a new cultural media project - a virtual cycle race through a common cultural heritage, helping build bridges between European citizens in an exciting, innovative way.
The #BigArtRide will visit ten European cities over twelve weeks from April to June 2016 to celebrate the Dutch Presidency of the EU and as part of the Europeana 280 campaign (see next page *) giving people across Europe the chance to take a virtual journey together. It will bring together two participants in different cities (one in Amsterdam, one elsewhere), invite them to get on their (stationary) bikes, put on virtual reality ‘Oculus Rift’ headsets, and navigate through a virtual city experiencing centuries of Europe’s art along the way. Passers-by can help the cyclists by interacting with giant objects in the public space. The goal? To be the quickest rider crossing Europe by bike! While opponents appear as virtual avatars during the race, they meet on the big screen once the race is over."
