The Living Museum is an outsider art programme aimed at people who haven't had the easiest life. For example, people with addiction, psychiatric problems or problems with homelesness.
The Living Museum has created a place where people can meet each other, make art together and to share it. Let yourself be inspired and share your talents with the world. Everyone is welcome to express themselves at this museum, to discover, to develop and to work on one's recovery. Take your vulnerability and change this into one of your strengths. Everyone deserves a podium.
What is outsider art?
Outsider art encompasses authentic artworks created by special artistic talents, who know how to listen to the voice inside them. Artists who don't look at what has already been created or who have studied at an art school, but those swho refuse to abide by the tradition art world and their preset boxes. Some of them have struggled, or are struggling, with psychic problems, homelesness or who have been in an institution or prison.
