In April, we presented the HearMe workshops at the National Gallery of Slovenia to two groups of students from the Faculty of Education. The first group consisted of art teachers in the making. Current and future cooperation with the department is of great importance for development of new museum programmes, relevant also to art education in schools. Second group consisted of international students from the museum education department, who were particularly interested in new and innovative methods of art interpretation. We presented the new teaching methods to both groups and explained the introduction and adaptation of the BrickMe methodology to museum environment. The overall experience and knowledge exchange was important for open and successful future collaboration between museums and educational institutions..

We shared our experience on the application and realization of the project with the desire to encourage other cultural professionals to apply for the Creative Europe program.
