In KunstLab children (4 t/m 12 years old) can discover their talents and learn new skills under the guidance of professional artists. Series of workshops are organised in a broad range of art disciplines such as music, dance, theatre, visual arts, spoken word, film and photography. Each project of KunstLab concludes with a presentation.
Teenagers (13-17 years old) are constantly developing: searching for their own identity, talents and a place in the world. At de Vrolijkheid teenagers research the stories they want to tell and shape these stories with the art disciplines of their choice.
Together with professional artists de Vrolijkheid organises art projects and workshops with youngsters between the ages of 15 and 25. The youngsters - the Beeld//Formers - are storytellers and the creators of their own stories, resulting in music video’s, podcasts, fashionshows and much more.
We organise special art projects for small children and their parents so that they can create stories together, share happy moments and contribute to positive family experiences.
NEST is a carefully designed safe space where children engage in artistic activities supported by a stable and familiar team. NEST activities are open three to four days a week and thus an addition to the regular Vrolijkheid programme.
We believe that learning from each other’s experiences, inspiring each other and sharing know-how improves the quality and impact of our work. For that reason all employees and volunteers of the Vrolijkheid Foundation are invited to join and enjoy the training programme of the Vrolijkheid Academy.
