Mark to the Music: a mindful art experience

Mark to the Music: a mindful art experience

After a successful first edition, back at ADE 2023! Mark to the Music- a mindful art experience is a multidisciplinary art intervention, focusing on the de-stressing and power of ambient electronic music and sound through a guided visual meditation. Drop into these multi-sensory and intuitive form of drawing session using mindfulness-based techniques.


Discover your inner artwork of space, flow, energy, movement by sounds, color & open awareness. It is not just a calming activity that relieves tension, but a unique way to explore, slow down and reflect that empowers our sense of well-being. Guided by professional mindfulness- meditationtrainer, key supporter of mindfulness practice in museums and program manager mental health at Museum van de Geest Jolien Posthumus, and multidisciplinary artist DJ Nelly, you will be taken on a personal journey within.


The Museum van de Geest is fascinated by the work of art inside your head. Because nothing is as diverse, unique, powerful and yet so fragile as the human mind. Through its art and cultural programmes, the museum helps to bring mental health and neurodiversity into the open. With this program Museum van de Geest and ADE aim to highlight the positive impact of art and music on mental health. Electronic music is taken out of the dancefloor context and integrated in a proven meditation practice. The meditation takes place in a quiet environment, invites you to stay in silence and materials will be provided.

We have two time slots available at 13:00 and 15:00.
