Get involved in CoolTan’s new Van Gogh Walks!

Join our exciting new project – Van Gogh Walks
A CoolTan and Artangel Collaboration

Help plan and lead guided public walks inspired by Vincent Van Gogh and his time in London!

Workshops are facilitated by ARTIST R.M. Sánchez-Camus

February – Late April 2014 – Join at any point!

Every Wednesday 11am – 2pm at CoolTan Arts, Third Floor, 224-236 Walworth Road, SE17 1JE.

Workshops are free and are open to people 18+ with experience of mental distress (self defined).

In the workshops we will explore letters written by Van Gogh about his experience here in London and also consider what it would have been like to see this city through his eyes, allegedly suffering from epilepsy, bi-polar disorder and delusions.

We will work together on the walk narrative through interactive workshops that explore our own stories in connection to Van Gogh’s.
These walks will use as a source of inspiration the Victorian row house situated at 87 Hackford Road where Vincent Van Gogh resided in 1873 whilst in London.

We will explore walking around the area, passing Van Gogh’s former residence and invite people on to a new journey of discovery. This will be a one-to-one performance, in which one audience members walks on a narrated journey, which they can hear over headphones.

For more info or to sign up call 020 7701 2696 or email olivia@cooltanarts.org.uk or pop in on a Wednesday to find out more.
