Dedicated to its fundamental pedagogical role in society, MoCA Skopje organizes a variety of programs through workshops, lectures, courses, and tours to promote reflection, questioning, and understanding of art. The Department of Education has decades of specifically designed educational activities realized in a successful collaboration with all spheres of education, starting with preschool groups of children, to students and special target groups interested in art.
Educational workshops enable the participants to enrich their knowledge of art, as well as to start developing their own creative and/or critical abilities. Inspired by significant works of art in the museum collection or particular exhibitions, the aim of the workshops is to stimulate discussions, and to realize and manifest their own points of view in the understanding of the artistic act. Workshop topics are varied and can be related to the museum's activities or to specially designed programs on themes related in general to contemporary art and its various forms of manifestation.
The Department for Education organizes many different discursive programs tackling the understanding of the history of modern and contemporary art, or a wider scope of theoretical and critical relations of art and culture to the particular manifestations within society nowadays.
The Department for Education organizes guided tours through its collections and current exhibitions, which could be guided either by the curators or artists themselves. Tours should be announced by the visitors in advance on the museum's email address or in direct contact.
