University

Master, tell me about the world!

Working closely with universities, Palazzo Grassi, Punta della Dogana host a series of workshops and meetings for students and lectures that turn the galleries into places for discussion, thought and interdisciplinary exchange to contribute to the education of those attending in a free and creative way.

Cultural mediation

On the occasion of their exhibitions Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana host a cultural mediation project with Venice’s Ca’ Foscari University.

When the museums are open, students trained by the museum’s curatorial team and their lecturers in the Philosophy and Heritage departments at Ca’ Foscari are available to help visitors during their visit. Speaking and listening, asking and walking are all actions that give their presence meaning. While the mediators are not guides, their interaction with the visitors establishes a stronger relationships with the works exhibited.
