The purpose of this meeting is to gather professionals from the theoretical and practical fields of education, art practice and curatorial and museum studies, seeking to generate an interpenetration of discourses between theory and practice and to create moments for critical reflection. We would like to invite all those interested in taking part in this reflective immersion and discussion.

The language of the meeting will be English.
