LEARN is the educational project of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. It welcomes everyone, and its contents are organized according to the audiences that they target and their specific needs and interests. Encompassing a wide range of programs, activities, and resources, LEARN is designed to enhance the enjoyment and knowledge of the Museum’s art program and the architecture of the building, and ultimately modern and contemporary art and culture in general.
FOR ALL AUDIENCES
As a teacher, a prime and essential educational agent, you can participate in different activities and programs designed FOR YOU and FOR YOUR CLASS.
We offer tools, spaces, and specific programs for children of different ages (beginning at 6 months old!) and their accompanying adult. Different ways of enjoying a friendly, enriching museum experience.
These programs include talks, lectures, dance, sound interventions, performances, concerts, film screenings, courses, and workshops targeted at adults who seek to further explore and expand upon the content of the Museum exhibitions and the works in the Collection.
LEARN ONLINE is the digital component of the Museum’s educational programming. It aims to enhance the on-site pedagogical experience with sustainable, lasting digital programs and tools and with innovative, accessible activities.
Through transformative pedagogical processes, the Museum focuses on different vulnerable communities and their values and social needs. Artistic-educational practice thus becomes an essential tool in promoting and developing INCLUSIVE and INTEGRATIVE CULTURE projects.
Talking about art unabashedly and experiencing it and analyzing it easily and accessibly while visiting the Museum becomes simple with the resources and programs we develop.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao gives young artists and art students born or living in the Basque Country the unique chance to spend two or three months working at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York.
