Fresh ideas from museums around the globe in your inbox each week
Sander Daams is currently Head of Education at the Groninger Museum and project manager of the first Childrens Biennale of the Netherlands.
He previously worked as an Educator for the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam.
At the Groninger Museum we believe that by working together with partners such as a medical centre, we as a museum can design better (educational) programs that fit special needs and improve health & well being. By collaborating in multiple projects the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) – the largest and only academic hospital in the North – and the Groninger Museum came up with programs to p.e. reduce isolation, or train medical students and doctors in training in becoming better doctors through engaging (observing, listening and looking) with art. Our latest project is a program to reduce stress for specifically doctors in training through engagement with Art.
