Radically Mine

Every student an artist

Inspired by...

The Van Abbemuseum wants to inspire people. With the annual project Radically Mine, we take the word 'inspire' quite literally. In this program, young people between the ages of 15 and 21 create their own works of art inspired by our collection. Sign up for the next edition: all schools can participate in the project (vmbo, havo, vwo, gymnasium, special education, and mbo).

Radically Mine: Common Ground

For the 2024 edition, we have chosen the theme of Common Ground. We will look at diverse forms of togetherness through the lens of art: we will share, think together, heal together, and create together. Students will be guided through their creative process with an extensive program of lessons, museum visits, inspiration sessions, and independent assignments. The highlight? Exhibiting their work in the museum!

Developing talent with Kunstbende

Kunstbende is the national competition for young, creative talent. The Van Abbemuseum and Kunstbende Noord-Brabant want young people to continue developing their creativity after the Radically Mine program. Ten talented students will receive a wildcard from the Van Abbemuseum, giving them direct access to the regional finals of the Kunstbende competition.
