Seize Your Moments

Janne is a social artist who collects beautiful moments to discover what happiness looks like across the globe. This Netherlands-based world-traveller asks everyday people to draw a beautiful moment from last week. They cheer up after such a question and start talking to each other. She has now collected over 8500 beautiful moments in 30 countries and 4 continents.

Janne had a background in cognitive artificial intelligence, cognitive neuroscience and philosophy. She published a book in Dutch about her Seize Your Moments project in November 2015. She is currently working on the English version and prepares for a documentary in the US.
