Anouk Foundation, brightening lives

The Foundation uses art to transform care facilities and as a therapeutic tool to improve the wellbeing of patients, their families and staff. It intervenes in hospitals, nursing homes, care facilities for children, psychiatric centers, centers for refugees/migrants and detention facilities. Every project is the result of close cooperation between artists, institution staff, educators and patients/residents. The theme of the project is discussed by all the parties involved in relation to the objectives, the place, the patient’s pathologies and age. As of today the Foundation has implemented more than 200 projects in 16 countries, reaching over 4.5 million beneficiaries.
