Educational programs

Educational Institutions

The Education Department of the Museo Moderno works with all levels of our educational system and accompanies institutional pedagogical processes. The Schools and Educational Institutions Department promotes several educational programs that enhance the link between the educational community and the museum.

If you are interested in your institution taking part in our programs, please send an email to [email protected]

Early Childhood

This initiative aims to offer educational experiences that are conceived and designed exclusively for children of preschool and kindergarten age. For more information, please contact us at [email protected]

In addition, we organize activities that are open to families with children from 6 months to 2 years of age. To find out what’s new, go to the Museum’s calendar.

The museum goes to school

El museo va a la escuela [The museum goes to school] is an educational offering that sees the museum as a platform that transcends the building itself to become a meeting space between ideas about art and students as producers of knowledge. If you are a primary and/or secondary school teacher and are interested in broaching the experiences and debates surrounding contemporary art, write to [email protected]


We have created a special program to receive students from careers related to the arts and other academic disciplines in order to consolidate the relationship between the museum and universities. The activities have been specially designed in conjunction with teachers. One of the program’s defining actions is to encourage debate among students in order to turn the museum into a space for education and training, as well as into a place for meeting, working, discovering and sharing critical thoughts.

The Moderno's Language Program

The Moderno’s Language Program (PIM, for its acronym in Spanish) is an initiative that offers the experience of integrating two different fields: Languages and the Visual Arts. It seeks to incorporate modern and contemporary art concepts and terminologies in foreign languages such as English, French and Portuguese.

The program is aimed at language teaching centers and educational institutions, both public and private, that offer English, French or Portuguese as one of their subjects at all levels: Elementary – Intermediate – Advanced – Bilingual. Each visit is customized according to the specific foreign language skills of each group.

Children’s Councils of the Moderno

The Children’s Council of the Moderno is a space created by and for children. It is a forum where children can play, think, express themselves and help the city and its museums to adapt to the desires and needs of children.

The new cycle of meetings will contemplate art, thought, childhood and citizenship. Together we will discover the particularities of our city and the world, ask ourselves questions about our actions, emotions and needs and, above all, listen to the advice of the children. We look forward to seeing you!

Council members, are you ready for an extraordinary journey?

Starts on Saturday, April 3rd at 11:30 a.m.

Un viaje extraordinario

Consejo de los niños y las niñas del Museo Moderno

R.E.A. Red de Escucha y Acompañamiento [The Listening and Support Network]

Cartographies to re-enchant worlds

The Museo Moderno presents R.E.A. Red de Escucha y Acompañamiento [The Listening and Support Network], a program dedicated to building relationships between the museum and the community.

In our quest to build a community and share experiences, the Moderno has renewed its commitment to deepening the social vocation of art, enhancing the importance of emotions and sensitivity in the public and private lives of individuals. 

¨Cartografías de la memoria viva¨ [“Cartographies of Living Memory”] is a project by artist-advocate Florencia Berccia. Together with the Communities Department of the Museo Moderno, she will carry out an investigation on the intersections between art and therapy. The program also includes a series of meetings for the elderly to discuss living memory, personal and collective stores, minor knowledge and personal experiences, among other issues.

As well as working with already-organized groups and communities, the Communities Department aims to work on-site. To learn more, write to: [email protected]

Rollo comunidades

Acción colectiva producida por usuarios y profesionales de salud mental

El Departamento de Educación a través del área Comunidades del museo, junto con el Equipo  profesional del Polo de Inclusión – Salud Mental  del Depto Inclusión (DGSAM), sostiene procesos y acciones que pretenden expandir territorios existenciales que conectan con la vida, los deseos y los afectos que nos unen. 

El “Rollo comunidades” es una acción colectiva que surge a partir de una activación del Gran manifiesto-rollo arte Vivo-Dito de Alberto Greco. En ella, usuarios y profesionales de la salud mental, artistas y educadores del museo compartieron marcas, palabras e imágenes que son testimonio del cruce posible entre arte y salud. Como cierre de la activación, surgió un poema compuesto por  algunas palabras que formaron parte del proceso de producción de la pieza.   

En la búsqueda de construir comunidad y compartir experiencias, el museo refuerza el compromiso de profundizar la vocación social del arte. Además de trabajar con grupos y comunidades ya constituidas, el Área de Comunidades se propone como un servicio en el territorio. Te invitamos a conocer más acerca de esta propuesta: escribinos a [email protected]

Centro de Vida [Creative Living Centre]

Artistic exchange programme with senior centres  and residences from Commune 1

The Communities Department of the Museo Moderno presents Life Centre. 

“Centro de Vida”, an outreach programme aimed at seniors, seeks to create a process of exchange and articulation of the artistic production channels between the museum and the centres and residences of Commune 1. 

The annual programme begins with the delivery of several kits containing materials that will circulate between the residences and the museum, in a two-way process. Inspired by the mail art movement, we have developed a repertoire of exercises that will include writing, collage and performance, and whose ultimate intention is to give art a place outside of the professional exhibition circuits, in the realm of everyday life and informal art education.

Other worlds – families

This program, designed by the Education team of the Museo de Arte Moderno, seeks to reconsider and reflect on the concept of “family” in its broadest and most diverse sense, through workshops, tours and teaching resources.
