ABC of the contemporary

Are you over sixty years old and have only just discovered that contemporary art might be your thing? MAXXI’s waiting for you!

Who is it aimed at?
Retired adults

What does it involve?
A training programme designed for adults who would like to perform an active role in the life of MAXXI as “reception volunteers” in the museum spaces.

How does it work?
MAXXI has developed a special programme for adults who, as pensioners, have free time available and are interested in getting a closer view of the world of contemporary art. The participants will follow a training programme and may become an important resource for the museum while enjoying a stimulating and gratifying experience within a developing cultural institution. The participants will acquire and develop knowledge and skills they may put at the disposal of the MAXXI public by providing reception and orientation services at the Education Department desk, illustrating the information material regarding the museum and its activities and by accompanying friends and relations to the exhibitions as guides.
