Happiness for Eindhoven
In 2015 Parktheater Eindhoven and Fontys started the initiative Happiness for Eindhoven: a week of cultural and educational activities on the theme "happiness". March 20th , the UN proclaimed the International Day of Happiness in 2016 the second edition of Happiness Eindhoven will start on the 21st. This year, the new partners Muziekgebouw Eindhoven , Natlab and the Van Abbemuseum created a versatile program with lectures , art, films, workshops and theater.
For the happiness programme in the museum, there are no extra costs besides your museumticket.
- You can join three mini - tours around the question 'what makes you happy?' Does an artwork make you happy when it's just beautiful or does it have to be familiar in some way? And where does critical reflection come in? Together with our guide and other visitors you will go through the collection on a happiness discovery tour.
- Happiness is one of the topics in the conversation with Anna Boghiguian. Don't forget to register!
- Have a Happy Meal in Karel 1 museumcafe.
