MaMA’s mission is to focus on the younger generation of artists, professionals, and public. We constantly introduce our young audience to contemporary art and contemporary art practice. Therefore, MaMA has a strong commitment to arts education, offering several educational programmes for participants of different ages and levels. We also offer customized workshops and guided tours, according to the participant’s demand and profile.

For younger audiences, an active arts education is an important motivation to identify with and develop an ongoing interest in arts and culture. MaMA believes in an active form of arts education based on the sharing of knowledge and experiences, and participants creating for themselves.

Generally, we ask a small compensation for our educational programmes, but we can always work something out.
