The Museum of Contemporary Art awarded national museological task
The Heritage Agency of Denmark has awarded the Museum of Contemporary Art 2.5 million kroner to initiate and execute the 3-year long educational project Learning Museum.
Learning Museum is a development project that aims to create bridges between museums' educational activities for children and youngsters and primary and lower secondary schools. The project includes both art museums and cultural and natural history museums, which together with a number of university colleges should explore new models of collaboration between museums and teacher training programmes.
Learning Museum is a nationwide project that was initiated by and led by the Museum of Contemporary Art. The museum undertook in 2009 a pilot that formed the basis for the preparation of the project and later the grant of 2.5 million.
The Museum of Contemporary Art has for many years distinguished itself in educational services to children and adolescents and has been working closely with schools, teachers and artists to explore communicational possibilities.
With Learning Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art gets the opportunity to test its ideas in a wider perspective. The educational curator and head of the project Tine Seligmann says: The completion of the project is a unique opportunity for museums to develop new and innovative teaching methods cutting across disciplinary boundaries. This cooperation will put museums at the heart of teacher training programmes and prepare future teachers to include museums into their teaching practices at schools.
