Spraakmakend van Abbe tour for people with aphasia

13:00 - 15:00
unlimited van Abbe

Please note: this tour is in Dutch.

With Spraakmakend Van Abbe we offer interactive tours for people with aphasia. Every person uses language. When one or more parts of the language spectrum no longer function properly as a result of brain injury, this is called aphasia.

Mijke Ulrich, experience expert / social worker and Jenneke Lambert, art historian, developed these beautiful tours together. The focus is on a positive, creative and inspiring experience, described by Mijke as "open your heart". The tour ends with a discussion and a joint cup of coffee or tea. Looking at art and the ability to express yourself without language together. Spraakmakend Van Abbe is part of the Special Guests program.
