 Discover how rituals and art can contribute to our health

Beyond The Spoken & Sídhe / ‘Geneeskunst’

Our lives are filled with conscious and unconscious rituals. Some rituals get their power from a rich history, while others grow out of contemporary needs or desires. How can rituals, old and new, contribute to our well-being and our health in 2019? Are artists the new ritual makers? Or do people from the care and well-being sector fulfil this role? ‘Geneeskunst’ (‘the art of healing’) is a day of inspiration, with talks, walks, performances and visualisations to stimulate an exchange around the topic of new ritual practices as they relate to the care sector. This day is a warm-up and introduction to the nighttime burning ritual ‘Uit handen geven’ by Beyond the Spoken and Amenra.
