“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.
