Today at the museum. Educate, learn and interpret

How do you create an educational project in a museum institution? How can we identify the instruments and best strategies for different audiences?

Within the MAXXI know-how advance training program, MAXXI proposes the second edition of the course dedicated to educational projects, starting from the work that has been carried out for over a decade by MAXXI Education, with the aim of making visitors active participants in the museum


The course offers an overview of museum education through direct confrontation with professionals who have created innovative projects for schools of all levels and accessibility, providing examples of best practices to draw inspiration from.
Moreover, the course has the objective of sharing with participants the MAXXI Education’s project method by showing their strategies and the various instruments involved in autonomous planning.

Spread over five days, the course is broken up into three parts: one in which materials and contents essential to the design will be provided, through case studies and in-depth meetings; another in which the MAXXI method will be tested through involvement in workshops; and, finally, a workshop in which participants, who will be divided into groups, will be asked to formulate a hypothetical educationalproject for schools with a focus on accessibility.


The course is addressed to museum educators, practitioners, and young professionals working in the sector who want to learn how to build an educational project.
The course will be held with a minimum of 15 participants and a maximum of 30.

The training course will be held at MAXXI from Monday 11th to Friday 15th November 2019, from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The cost per each participant is € 490.00.
