De Nieuwe Vincent
Daagt jonge talenten uit
Who will be the Nieuwe Vincent this year?
Together with Vincents Tekenlokaal Kunstpodium T organises the talent project ‘de Nieuwe Vincent’, in which young drawing talents from North-Brabant between 10 and 14 years old are being encouraged to send in their work and compete for the title ‘De Nieuwe Vincent’ (the new Vincent).
Five years ago, the idea arose to connect the Apprentice Master project and the place where the young Vincent van Gogh receives his first drawing lessons 150 years ago. Ever since, the selected young talents get a series of workshops and excursions. During the final exhibition at the end of the trajectory, the New Vincent is announced by a jury. This talent will receive the Jan Naaijkensprijs Junior from the Noord-Brabants Genootschap. In addition he or she will also get the opportunity to develop his or her drawing talent further, because talent should not go to waste.
