Wellbeing with Vincent
The Van Gogh Museum wants to make the art and life of Vincent van Gogh accessible to a diverse audience. Van Gogh’s mental illness is an important part of his story and we felt it was about time we addressed it more openly! Developing a ‘mental health program’, together with young adults and health professionals, we want to make a positive contribution to their wellbeing. With Vincent as a starting point, we aim to foster dialogue, offer creative tools, and embrace diversity.
