Fresh ideas from museums around the globe in your inbox each week
Sarah Broekhoven works as a curator of education at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
An Art historian by origin, Sarah has worked as a teacher in secondary education, combining knowledge and work experience to create educational programmes both in and outside of the museum.
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.
