Fundación Banco Santander renews again its commitment with the MACBA Foundation by supporting the Teacher Training Program of the museum.

Last Tuesday, November 21th, it took place the signing ceremony for the renewal of the agreement with Fundación Banco Santander, patron of the Teacher Training Program of the museum since 2012.

Teacher training allows educators to strengthen their knowledge of contemporary art sharing investigation processes with artists, in order to convey this knowledge to its students at the classroom.

The programme for the course 2017-2018 includes research seminars on the works of the MACBA Collection, Introduction courses on contemporary art, workshops with artists, specific courses about temporary exhibitions of the museum as "Brossa Poetry" and "MACBA Collection. Beneath the surface", apart from discussions that invite us to reflect on the trends and challenges of education. The objectives for this new course focus on creating a community of teachers with a research group around the Collection throughout the year, and will continue to emphasize activities with artists. The aim is to open a space of collaboration in order to participate in the artists' experience within their creation processes, as well as thinking about the potentiality of experimentation in the classroom based on artistic practices.

Every year more than 850 teachers of Primary Education, Secondary, and High School receive these training courses, all of them recognized by the Department of Education of the Generalitat of Catalonia.
