Art without pressure
The Netherlands | In this blog we would like to highlight a lovely foundation in The Netherlands that we support with art materials: Stichting Kunstnest. They give children from 1 to 12 years old the opportunity to express their creativity without any added pressure. In doing so, the children improve their social, emotional and motor skills.
Stichting Kunstnest has various ateliers throughout the city Haarlem. In these ateliers, also called ‘nests’, the children can experiment with various art styles, meet new friends, and let their imagination run wild. Our society puts a lot of pressure on everyone, even children, but in the ‘nests’ they can take a break from that and just relax with some paint. Isn’t that beautiful?
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! Warm wishes, Jinwen Projectmanager at the Royal Talens Foundation
