Interactive guided tours

Contemporary art crosses disciplinary boundaries, uses a great diversity of media and materials, and is open to various interpretations. Witte de With aims to acquaint young people with contemporary art in a way that is both stimulating and accessible. During a visit, the students’ questions or interests, surprise or indignation are taken as points of departure. They will gain invaluable tools for engaging critically with culture at large. We encourage school groups visiting Witte de With for the first time to book an interactive guided tour with one of our professional guide
