TextielMuseum / TextielLab
Located in a former textile factory in Tilburg, The TextielMuseum is a dynamic and creative museum. It is the only place in the world where design, art, fashion, heritage and innovation in the field of textile come together. What makes the museum unique is the combination of exhibitions, educational programs and the specialised TextielLab (TextileLab), a one-of-a-kind lab for making and innovating (new types of) textile. In the TextielLab, you can watch (inter)national artists and designers work their magic. The lab is the beating heart of the TextielMuseum and is where designers research the endless possibilities of textiles, together with our experts. This unique museum concept was awarded the international Best in Heritage Award in 2018.
Talent Development & Work Excursion 2: TextielMuseum / TextielLab
An optimally inclusive society is created when everyone is given the opportunity to use their talents; whether this is in your free time, or in your work! Today, we will introduce you to impactful initiatives that are internationally acclaimed for their views and work on talent development. Creativity, innovation and personal attention are keys to success.
A range full of design products is created at Social Label, where top designers work together with people with a distance to the labour market. The Krachtcentrale 013 gives people wings and stimulates them to explore what it is that gives them energy. Re-integrating has never been so pleasant! And in theory a museum is for everyone, but what if you are visually impaired or deaf, for example? Studio I develops concepts for an inclusive museum experience. You will be introduced to another successful museum experience at the TextielMuseum, exploring work by (inter)national artists and designers during a visit to this iconic place.
