In the eighth episode of the podcast What's that doing here? Esther Didden and co-host Kamiel Verschuren spoke with visual artists Sjaak Langenberg and Rosé de Beer, and with filmmaker Floor Hofman. They also spoke with Nanda Lippens of Reinaerde.
Sjaak Langenberg and Rosé de Beer have been working with care organization Reinaerde for years. Together with the artists and designers they invite, including Floor Hofman, they make new connections between De Heygraeff in Woudenberg - where people live with severe mental and physical disabilities - and the recreational environment. They will then develop installations, workshops, performances, prototypes and interventions in the outdoor space.
This involves using residual materials from the organization and the environment of De Heygraeff as much as possible. Thus, care for people, materials and nature come together at ONEn place. What can art accomplish in such an environment that cannot be accomplished from within the health care system? And what is it like to work as an artist with this target group?

For better and more complete care, the healthcare industry greatly benefits from collaboration with artists.
