De Nieuwe Vincent
Challenges young talents
Who will be the ‘New Vincent’ this year?
Together with Vincents Tekenlokaal, Kunstpodium T organises the talent project ‘de Nieuwe Vincent’ (the new Vincent). In this project, young art talents from Brabant with a special talent for drawing from ten to fourteen years are encouraged to send in their work. In doing this, they compete in the race to win the title of ‘de Nieuwe Vincent’.
Several years ago, the idea arose to combine the Apprentice Master project and the place where the young Vincent van Gogh received his first drawing lesson 150 years ago. Ever since this moment selected young talents for the program get a series of workshops and excursions in the project. During the final group exhibition, the New Vincent is chosen. This talent receives the prestigious Jan Naaijkensprijs Junior from the Noord-Brabants Genootschap. On top of that, he or she also gets the opportunity to develop their artistic talent even further, because talent cannot go to waste.
