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.

Expression without language

Mijke Ulrich, experience expert and social worker, and art historian Jenneke Lambert developed the Spraakmakend Van Abbe-tours together. Participants will look at art together and are given the opportunity to express themselves without using language. With a focus is on a positive, creative and inspiring experience, Mijke describes the tour as ‘open your heart’. The visit ends with a joint conversation and a cup of tea or coffee.
