Rivoli Castle – Contemporary Art Museum
piazza Mafalda di Savoia, 10098 Rivoli (Torino) - T 011 9565213 F 011 9565232
In tune with the Museum’s mission, the Educational Department has promoted and spread contemporary art-related knowledge and culture since 1984.
The programme addresses schools, education, training and Institutions for cultural promotion, families and the general public. The methodological, conceptual and operative approaches refer to the inspiring principle: Educating to Art with Art, and is aimed at turning the viewer into the main actor. Encountering art, whether inside or outside the Museum, transforms knowledge into an authentic life experience. The countless activities, in line with national and international standards, stem from principles of Lifelong learning, Peer Education and full accessibility for those disabled people who are visually impaired, mentally deficient or have motor disorders. In particular, the unique research that was carried out with Turin’s ‘Istituto dei Sordi’ (Institute of the Deaf, TN) and Unicredit Group, allowed to realize the first ever dictionary that translates specific contemporary art language into the Italian language of signs.
The Educational Department has, thanks to its experimenting and researching activities, stressed the importance of art’s educational function in society, thereby obtaining both national and international acknowledgements and awards. In 2009 it was awarded the Minimum Prize by Cittadellarte.

PAV - Parco Arte Vivente (Living Art Park)
via Giordano Bruno 31, 10134 Torino - T 011 3182235
The Educational and Training Activities department works out and proposes laboratories, workshops and training programmes that are always related to the exhibited works and are aimed at favouring the comprehension and experimentation of these. The objective, in line with the concept of relationalism, is to give citizens a renewed impulse to active participation to cultural life by sensitizing the different audiences on environmental themes through the language of art. The activities that are addressed to schools or to those interested in continuous and permanent learning have been structured in specific and multidisciplinary fields of investigation: Creative Biology, Microglances, Hybridizations and Scapes, four areas of elaboration that allow to experiment the processes used by the artists that are featured in the permanent and temporary exhibits.
All laboratory proposals have been organized according to different age groups and are disabled-friendly.
