Explore Van Gogh's letters and walks with Cool Tan Arts

We are very excited about Cool Tan Arts' new collaboration with Artangel. Cool Tan Arts is a local mental health and arts charity which believes that mental wellbeing is enhanced by the power of creativity. Some of Van Gogh's own mental distress, including seizures, hallucinations and depression, are recorded in his letters and those of others.

The project is inviting people to help plan guided walks and an audio trail inspired by Vincent Van Gogh.

Creative workshops will involve exploring this area on foot, studying the letters Vincent wrote when he lived here at 87 Hackford Road, and considering what it would have been like to see the city through his eyes.

Meet every Wednesday 11-2 at CoolTan Arts Gallery Space, 237 Walworth Road. First session Wednesday 5th February.
