Our History

The Royal Talens Foundation was established in 2015 with the support of Royal Talens and forms part of a socially responsible way of doing business.


In 1999 Royal Talens established ‘Talens Palet’, a non-profit initiative aimed at stimulating amateur artists and illustrators through organising a national competition. After various successful editions of this competition and more than 8000 participants, Royal Talens decided to expand the mission of its non-profit and established the Royal Talens Foundation.


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 ensures that we are capable of identifying new opportunities and solutions.


The Royal Talens Foundation therefore wishes for people, young and old, everywhere in the world to express their creativity. By means of drawing and painting skills, we are looking to change attitudes and behaviour, and thereby contribute to a better and more sustainable future.
