How can healthcare institutions establish links with their surroundings?
“Care for mankind and materials comes together in one place.”— Sjaak Langenberg and Rosé de Beer
Sjaak Langenberg and Rosé de Beer created an artist-in-residency in the porter’s lodge of De Heygraeff in Woudenberg. The artists and designers invited here create products and think up activities for and with residents with a mental and physical handicap. In the process, they make use of the surroundings and, wherever possible, of local waste material. For example, the design duo Arvid & Marie de Omniphone designed a tactile musical instrument made of the disposable containers in which food is distributed. And in Robin Weidner’s inclusive wood workshop, the small table for a wheelchair changes into a work-bench, where you can work safely with leftover wood, whether you’re living at De Heygraeff or attending primary school in Woudenberg.
