Good creative education for everyone
In 2015, the United Nations adopted 17 sustainable development goals. One of these goals is quality education. Royal Talens stimulates creative expression worldwide, because we believe creative expression is essential for the development of every human being. Good quality education does not exist without creative expression.
Our dream and goal
Our dream and goal is good quality education for every child. To achieve this, we help schools and other organisations introduce creative programs for children, because good education does not exist without creative expression and without good education children are limited in expressing their creativity.
At the Royal Talens Foundation we believe that creative expression is essential for everyone's personal development and therefore contributes to a social and better world. Through art and creative expression, children and adults develop qualities and skills that are important for future success. Creativity stimulates our brain, gives us confidence, improves our motoric skills and helps us identify new opportunities and solutions.
The Royal Talens Foundation therefore wishes for people, young and old, everywhere in the world to express their creativity. By giving people the chance to explore their creativity, we are looking to change attitudes and behaviour, and thereby contribute to a better and more sustainable future.
The Royal Talens Foundation wants to make a major contribution to good creative education for disadvantaged children and young adults. Every year, the foundation chooses various projects worldwide that meet its requirements. Together we do our outmost to make our contribution to a better world.
Spain | Together with artist and Royal Talens Spain colleague Pilar Barrios Varela, fifteen migrant women and girls created four beautiful ‘Vertical Gardens’. During the process they found strength, confidence and support with each other. This is how they did it.
At the annual Creativeworld in Frankfurt, Royal Talens connected with their business partners and community. The Royal Talens Foundation was present as well with an interactive display. Passersby were encouraged to share their thoughts on which non-profit the Royal Talens Foundation should collaborate with next. The response was fantastic, and we're grateful for all the great ideas we received. It is a starting point for new collaborations so we can expand on projects around the world. And we are still open to new ideas! do you want to connect? Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org 💌 We want to extend our gratitude to all the visitors at Creativeworld for taking part in this interactive experience and for the numerous connections we made at the event. We're thrilled to join hands and work together to empower young minds to paint a colorful future.
Tanzania | On October 31, 2023, Vrijwillig Wereldwijd, a Dutch volunteering organization, orchestrated a heartwarming art project at a school for deaf children called Shule ya Viziwi in Iringa, Tanzania. Elise Diderich was there to help and reported back to us about the event. She mentioned that over 100 children joined the workshop in which they could paint their favourite animals with watercolours from Royal Talens. A big turnout for a fantastic event!
Dear community, As we say goodbye to 2023, we cannot ignore the numerous challenges and unexpected events that marked this year. But here's the thing: art and colours might not be magic wands, but they sure do make life a bit brighter! In times like these, creativity is key, and art can unlock new perspectives, bring people together, and even inspire change. That's why we're thrilled to have you on board with us. Together, we're empowering young minds to paint a more colourful future for all. Our team is excited for our upcoming projects that aim to bring children and young people together through the shared joy for creativity. We're eager to team up with anyone who shares our passion. So, feel free to reach out to us if you have some colourful ideas for 2024. From everybody at the Royal Talens Foundation we wish you happy holidays and a colourful 2024!
