Recently, various organizations have put their heads together to see what is still possible in this corona time. Various working groups have been set up to look together at how we can support people who are alone a lot or can use help. The working groups look at possibilities to bring people into contact with each other digitally, creative activities to bring people something fun, how we reach people and practical help such as shopping. Activities come from the working groups and you can find them here.

boxes of happiness
Make a personal box of happiness for someone you love, someone you love or someone you don't know but who deserves a special gift. This is a new project in which Judith Abels, theater designer and visual artist, once again invites the residents of Vught, Cromvoirt and Helvoirt to connect with someone else. Making a box of happiness for someone else, in which you create a world that supports the other in this difficult time. Earlier, Abels made the Freedom Skirt for Vught Celebrates 75 years of Freedom with many residents and students from the municipality of Vught. Which will be on display at National Monument Kamp Vught from March to October 2021.
Everyone knows someone who deserves just a little more attention, because you can't get to them enough, for example, or because that person is lonely, is sick or has worries. Especially since corona makes life more difficult together. In a box of happiness you create a personal image that you suspect will make the other person smile or even dream away in it, because it gives him or her a different view of the world. As small as a box is, it can just open that one window and let happiness pour in.
Judith Abels, in collaboration with Plaza Cultura, invites all residents of the municipality of Vught, young and old, to participate in the Boxes of Happiness project. Create a little happiness in the living rooms of loved ones and fellow residents! Use your own creativity, materials and techniques for this; cut, saw, fold, prick or sew... Put it in a box, tin, box, butter dish, whatever you have available and find suitable. You give your box to your recipient at a time that suits you. Would you like to make a box, but you don't know for whom? Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org .
How do we bring the power of art to people who can now use a helping hand?Plaza Cultura would like to build a bridge with the Kunst Kameraad(je) project. As a marketplace for cultural education and culture coaches, they want to bring artists and Vught residents together in a vulnerable situation (with an appropriate distance). This is done in collaboration with various organizations from the municipality.
The Art Comrade(you) trajectory provides encounters between a vulnerable person/family and an artist. From these encounters, the artist, possibly together with the comrade, develops a small work of art for this person: a song, poem, painting, photo, drawing or something else. A small, personal and artistic gesture.
Do you know someone, living in Vught, Cromvoirt or Helvoirt, who could use a personal and artistic gesture? Please contact Heleen Korthals via email@example.com . Then we will see if we can match him or her with an artist. More information can be found on the Plaza Cultura website: (heading Vught).
On King's Day, 370 residents of Vught, Cromvoirt and Helvoirt received a letterbox package with a beautiful orange bouquet of tulips, a flag and card. Unfortunately, we celebrated King's Day at home this year, but with this package we hope to have brightened people up.
This was made possible in part by the Oranjefonds, Ouderen Samen, ABZ Foundation, Stichting Met je hart – Den Bosch/Vught, Seniorenbus Vught and Welzijn Vught.
