ABOUT

The project gathers 3 great museum institutions: National Gallery of Slovenia in Ljubljana, Kunsthistorisches museum in Vienna (Austria), the Gallery of Matica srpska in Novi Sad (Serbia) and organization Innovación Social Emprendedores Sociales from Coruna, in the mission of bringing youth and museums together.

OUR GOALS
- Build deeper relationships between the youth and partner museums
- Capacity building: develop skills of museum educators for open concept of youth programming based on youth's participation, and upon their expectations, wishes, and needs
- Incorporate advanced methodologies into museum programming
- Audience development: modernization of the programmes that are youth-specific

During 17 months of the project we will give answers on how museums and galleries can reach young audiences and make them think about global topics and problems of the society. Artworks that speak about migrations, population movements and movement of cultural heritage will open the central topic of the project - how can key issues of today be perceived through the art of the past. Museum professionals and educators will develop skills for creation and realization of workshops for young people between the ages of 15 and 19 and use advanced methodologies in order to provide greater museum experience.
