Educational Programme 2014 >>

In recent years, la Biennale di Venezia has devoted a growing attention to learning activities, and developed a stronger and stronger commitment to so-called “Educational” initiatives addressed to the Exhibitions public, universities, youngsters, and children from all kinds of schools.
In the past two years, la Biennale’s great 13th International Architecture Exhibition and 55th International Art Exhibition had 80,191 participants in educational activities in total, amongst whom 53,853 were youngsters.
A broad Educational offer shall be available in 2014 as well, addressing itself to individuals and groups of students, children, grown-ups, families, professionals, companies and universities. All initiatives pivot on an active involvement of participants, they are led by professional operators, carefully selected and trained by la Biennale, and fall into the following categories: Guided Itineraries and Workshop Activities.
- Guided Itineraries lead visitors through the exhibition venues of the 14th International Architecture Exhibition, they have an open and participatory structure; they are particularly suited to high-schools, art lovers and grown-ups. They fall into guided tours proper, focus tours and theme-based visits.
- Workshop Activities are addressed toall kinds of public, with particular attention to young and very young visitors and to schools; they are based on a stimulating and interactive approach, triggering creativity and children’s capacity to elaborate contents. They fall into the categories of multimedia workshops, making use of IT-devices, multidisciplinary workshops, delving into the languages of architecture and music, theoretical, and practical workshops, to stimulate creativity with hands-on activities, and creative ateliers with families.
La Biennale’s Educational offer is further enriched by special projects focusing on thechallenges of creativity and innovation, offering the opportunity to approach the Exhibition themes from specific professional or scholarly perspectives. Such projects are particularly suited to companies, professionals and scholars, and they focus on the Exhibition themes as opportunities to update and extend visitors’ competences and sensibilities.
