The Van Gogh Village Nuenen Foundation (Stichting Van Gogh Village Nuenen) shows all (inter)national visitors why his period in Nuenen was so crucial, and was consequently the most interesting period in his development as a person and as an artist. The heritage locations and the Vincentre museum ensure a unique experience, because nowhere else in the world can visitors get so close to Van Gogh as in Nuenen.
Van Gogh Village Nuenen is working towards (inter)national recognition and accreditation of the importance of Van Gogh’s period in Nuenen. By literally following in his footsteps, more and more visitors are experiencing that they can't get any closer to Van Gogh, and by offering this experience, our foundation is contributing to the Brabant leisure economy. In addition, by having Van Gogh in our midst as a knowable, touchable figure, the manufacturing and knowledge industry of the Brainport region in south-east Brabant is given a creative and inspirational boost.
These are our focus points for the next few years:
Organisation with volunteers
The Van Gogh Village Nuenen Foundation is a large organisation in which about 160 volunteers play an active part. All of them people who do their work with pleasure, are happy to share their knowledge, want to make a significant impact and of course display the famous Brabant hospitality. Their respect for Vincent van Gogh is the main incentive.
The Nuenense Krant local newspaper produced a Special (in Dutch) in November 2019 about the volunteers in the Vincentre (see attachment).
*Board members are volunteers and unpaid.
