The value of the heritage lies in all that it can explain. Museums, as institutions responsible of their conservation and communication, cannot elude the need to carry out their work from an educational perspective.
Along this last year, the UNESCO Chair of Cultural Policies and Cooperation have been working on an analysis of the educational services of 27 museums in the Girona province, a study ordered by the Xarxa de museus de les comarques de Girona. Along this time we have been able to share a large number of experiences and perspectives and to expand the vision that all of us have about the need to educate through culture and heritage. Take a look on the results in the attached document!

Applications of the project are already available – Learning from practical experiences. Culture and development – for the management of actions within the cultural scope for development.

These applications are designed to be used in the formulation, management and evaluation of this type of actions and they have been elaborated with the experience gained from the projects of The MDG-F Culture and Development Thematic Window.


The biggest and more complex project we ever have taken from these last years. The Chair, with  ADPP-GB, is working on a cultural map of Guinea-Bissau and more specifically about the capital, Bissau. That means an identification of the cultural activity and agents, their points of view of culture and society, their needs, how to make cultural activity an engine for local development, and, moreover, give formation and training to those agents. It is on this kind of countries, where the population have not many economical resources, where these kind of projects take all the strenght and significance.

A big challenge which is going to become a reality in 2020!

Cultural Education Policies in Europe

Can we share a common idea on arts and cultural education in Europe? Or do we have to focus on different, incomparable situations and concepts? Can we find or define standards in the European countries, meeting the challenges of the present world? Are the European countries facing similar or completely different problems?

All theses questions will be discussed at the International Conference "Cultural Education Policies in Europe" of the European Network of Observatories in the Field of Arts and Cultural Education (ENO) which takes place in Poland the 22th March 2018.
