High school work placement course

Work-school placement project

From 2015 Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana takes part in a work-school placement project, run in collaboration with the Regional Scholastic Office of the Veneto Region, by offering a program of apprenticeships for high school students.

A group of students, selected by an open call, have the opportunity to live a professional experience in a creative and challenging context. The participants get to know a cultural institution from within and discover its workings and dynamics at first hand. Alongside the museum staff, the students are involved in the design and creation of specific tools for interaction and engagement of the ‘teenage’ audience.

Immersed in an international cultural environment, whose buildings are tied to the past but whose contents are oriented towards the future, the participating students gain awareness of the social role of a cultural institution and take part in the development of various initiatives addressed to the public.

The complexity of contemporary art allows students to face first hand different current issues and to reflect on the daily challenges of an institution committed to mediate and share with the public the richness of its contents as well as its history.
