LeidenGlobal is a meeting place for people interested in places around the world, and the dynamics between them, their histories, and their cultures. It is a partnership between academic and cultural organisations with a global focus, based in Leiden.

Leiden has an international reputation as a stronghold of knowledge about cultures worldwide. LeidenGlobal aims to be a meeting place for the Leiden researchers, cultural and academic institutions, social organisations (NGO’s), government, companies and the citizen, with the aim of creating a better understanding of (human) culture and societies throughout the world.

Building on world-class museum- and library collections, LeidenGlobal aims to increase the knowledge valorisation and societal impact, across the full range of cultural events and public debate to graduate education and research projects. LeidenGlobal contributes to a better understanding of the numerous cultures of the world and their different modes of interactions. In addition, LeidenGlobal serves as an open platform, showcasing the wealth of knowledge and experience to be found in Leiden to a national and international audience.

The photo exhibitions are part of the activities LeidenGlobal organises to create more (broad) awareness of several themes, related to global issues and (international) research by Leiden scholars.
