LOOKING FOR ARTISTS
TO COLLABORATE WITH
HEALTH CARE CLIENTS

NEW PROJECT BY
MARIEKE ZWART
START JANUARY 2021

Hi, I am Marieke Zwart, a visual artist working in Amsterdam. I am looking for artists that are interested in collaborating with mental healthcare clients in Amsterdam. Starting in January 2021 I am setting up a pilot project DEPEND ON ME where I will facilitate four collaborations between four artists and four amateur artists that are or have been mentally vulnerable. DEPEND ON ME is an experimental research project that questions work process, dependency and presentation in an engaged art context.

With help from social art professionals Esther Vossen (het Vijfde Seizoen) and Wendie Hoenders (artworker HVO Querido) I will set up a new program with weekly workshops, studio visits and excursions in Amsterdam. Main subject is the question of dependency in the different work fields of art and mental health care. At the end, in July we will present the new artworks and publish our experiences and new knowledge in an online publication.

For five months 8 participants will work in duo's on a new work that deals with dependency. I will be both participant of one of the collabs, as well as one of the advisors of the other three collaborations.

Perfect participant profile: Engaged, curious, and experimental artist

I provide: material budget, difficult questions, workshops from professional artists, contact with (new) work field and individuals, workspace, professional advice, an interesting work context outside of the conventional artworld and many more things.

Looking forward to hear from you
