Quiet visits and slow art: making your collection more accessible
Since 2021 Museum Hof van Busleyden has been developing ways to reach an audience who traditionally experience boundaries when visiting museums. Through quiet visits and slow art sessions people with burnout, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and many other types of neurodivergence can enjoy art at their own pace. These calming cultural experiences are open to anyone. Everyone who enjoys a low stimulus environment can join: introverts rejoice!
