Project for teenagers

Project for teenagers

Since 2015, Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana has been offering various educational projects for high school students and teenagers that can be recognised as placement hours by the Regional Scholastic Office of the Veneto Region (PCTO, ex-ASL).

Ekphrasis - The art of describing art
In November and December 2019, the poet and performer Alessandro Burbank, together with the team of the Educational Services of Palazzo Grassi - Punta della Dogana, will lead Ekphrasis - The art of describing art, a project that aims at understanding works of art and at communicating them through poetry. The participants will develop the creative skills for poetic writing as their capacity to interpret the meaning of a work of art.

Participants aged 15 to 19 years old, residents in the Veneto Region, are invited to apply to the project by Monday 14 October. Participants should have a particular interest in art, writing and oral expression in all its forms (reading, rap, poetry slam, storytelling, performance, etc.). The workshop in led in Italian.
