Dies Natalis

Portrait series

Every year, Ghent University blows out an extra candle at Dies Natalis. And as tradition dictates, the university also awards honorary doctorates. We provided explanation in the who, how, what and why. 

We let the academics speak. They carefully explain who deserves an honorary doctorate and why they deserve it. Going further than the mainstream interview, we went for a more creative approach and projected content and into the setting. 

We’re proud to present 2 series of the Dies Natalis format.
