On September 18, the signing for the renewal of the agreement between the MACBA Foundation and the Banco Santander Foundation, patron of the Teacher Training Program of the museum for the seventh consecutive year, took place at MACBA. The program aims to disseminate and expand the knowledge of teachers in contemporary art as long as they acquire security in the contents, to apply it in the classrooms and to facilitate the visit of the school group to the museum.

During the last course, 900 teachers of elementary, primary, secondary, high school and higher education have benefited from the program. The courses are recognized by the Departament d'Ensenyament of the Generalitat de Catalunya as a permanent training activity.

For the new academic year 2018-2019, MACBA aims to expand the community of teachers and reinforce the program with new courses in Contemporary Art related to the museum's exhibitions and workshops with artists, in which Jordi Colomer, Andrés Duque, Patricia Esquivias and Marina Monsonís will participate, all of them starting from the same conductivethread: the city.

In addition, the working group on MACBA’s Collection, which is a community of professors who meet weekly at the museum to investigate the concepts that underpin the permanent Collection, will continue.
