The museums participating on the project aim at re-evaluating and rethinking their resources: archives, collections and working methods in order to develop their potentials by creating knowledge and connecting the various types of audiences. The traditional roles of the contemporary art museum are changing: its most important activities are no longer merely storage, studying and exhibiting of artworks, but also an active involvement with the museum’s audience. For this reason, the project will develop combination of exhibitions ans educational programs based on participatory approach, intended for both, the audience and the staff.

Mediations of Art. International seminar
Koroška galerija likovnih umetnosti

The lectures will focus on the ways of communicating art to visitors with the aim of improving the understanding of, interest in and experience of contemporary art, and on good practices in educational and cultural institutions and independent organisations.

Pedagogues, professionals and curators are invited to participate. As the seminar is organised in the context of an international project, the lectures will be held in English and open to the broader public, too.
