ArteKino makes art and cultural heritage accessible to a variety of target groups by designing custom fit programs, supervising the processes regarding implementation of these programs and sharing experience and knowledge.
Gaining access to contemporary art and cultural heritage means you can experience, create and discuss new or mystifying worlds. According to ArteKino, this contributes to the development of self-analysis, self-expression as well as self-confidence, enjoyment and awareness.
ArteKino creates meaningful experiences in which curiosity, observation, exploration, imagining and reflecting form its core. Evoking curiosity as well as enjoyment which generates receptiveness to being open-minded.
ArteKino designs educational materials and (mobile) presentations to make art and cultural heritage accessible to young and old, whether you are able or have reduced mobility.
New experiences are created by means of various senses and using different disciplines. Room for curiosity, inquisitiveness, personal interpretation and imagination are key. ArteKino works for various larger and smaller clients in the museum and heritage industry such as the National Maritime Museum, COBRA Museum, Archaeological museum Huis van Hilde, CODA, Landschap Erfgoed Utrecht (environmental heritage Utrecht), Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed (government service cultural heritage) and Museum Flehite.
ArteKino manages processes in which preferably, content, specific or special target groups and quality take centre stage. Examples are: 1] Museum For 1 Day and Second Canvas Studio in which art and culture are made accessible for the elderly in nursing homes 2] Ewoud meets Elizabeth a community-art project and 3] School Counselling and staff training within the program Culture Education with Quality.
Looking for a new approach to visitor support?
ArteKino offers training to learn to view one's own collection from a different perspective and translate this to visitor-oriented activities. ArteKino was pleased to provide training and coaching for the National Military Museum, Het Spoorwegmuseum (railway museum), Stichting Utrechts Museumkwartier (foundation Utrecht Museum Quarter) and Ieders Museum Gelderland (Everyone’s Museum Gelderland).
Museum For 1 Day (MV1D) is a museological experience on site for people who, due to mental and/or physical limitations are not able to visit museums any longer. ArteKino, in cooperation with healthcare organization AxionContinu has developed MV1D for the museums in Utrecht in 2011. (link naar website)

As a result of the Second Canvas Musea Utrecht-app, masterpieces from museums in Utrecht are now available to everyone who experiences difficulties visiting these museums. Download the app: Second Canvas Musea Utrecht.
ArteKino likes to share its knowledge and experiences in order to connect various ideas and worlds and is able to convert this into practically feasible projects.
