Medicine Factory is an accessible art project by Circus Engelbregt in which health, responsibility, social cohesion and concern for nature and environment meet in a work setting. Medicine Factory is a workshop that is open to the public, where people are given access to the healing powers of nature to make their own medicine based on their personal ailments.
We set up the laboratory from 2013 to 2015, in places such as the Amstelpark in Amsterdam, Sonsbeekpark in Arnhem, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam and in Eindhoven for the Dutch Design Week. We also set up the Travelling Medicine Factory in 2014. The Medicine Factory was nominated for the Dutch Design Award and selected for the Elisabeth van Thüringen Prize.
