An educational program from the museum to the comunites / Un programa edcuativo desde el museo para las comunidades
For me as an artist, researcher, and educator, helping The Museum of Contemporary art of Maracaibo (MACZUL), has been a matter of social responsibility, especially the art education department trough the ESCOLARTE program. A program that I proposed to improve the art education in the high schools of my city, Maracaibo.
A city where the school system has experienced a scarcity of opportunities towards art education and have almost zero activities to do art making. Additionally, and what is even worst, with the last change in the 2015 school curriculum, art education will practically be eliminated. So, for me, this is a matter of giving opportunities to the students; to connect them to the visual arts, to connect them to their culture, to give them the chance to express themselves, to open them towards a new way of thinking.
