Programme "The art of speaking"

Programme "The art of speaking"


The programme The art of speaking is the result of the collaboration between the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya and the Lifelong Learning Education Service of the Department of Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya.

Its aim is to foster competency-based learning of languages in the schools of adults paying special attention to oral communication and transmedia literacy, understood as a set of skills, practices, values, sensitivities, and learning strategies and exchanges applied in the context of new collaborative cultures.  

The programme proposes a series of debates and activities that incorporate the methodology of Virtual Thinking Strategies (VTS) and the works of art from the museum’s collection.  To find out more about the programme, we encourage you to watch the video produced by the Adults Training Centre Pere Calders.

It is structured around three thematic itineraries aligned with the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the Education Agenda 2030 with the aim of generating topics of debate of global interest that fosters an inclusive and equitable education of quality for all.

Any adult education centre may participate in the programme. There are two modalities of participation:

  • With an educator - The educator will provide 1 hour of discussion according to the chosen itinerary + ½ hour of free activity led by the teachers (you have some suggested in each itinerary).
  • Free visit - If the teachers have received training in VTS they will be able to carry out the activity themselves at no cost.

In both cases, you need to contact the reservation service [email protected] or by calling 936220375.

Resources: you have at your disposal an Approach Guide to the Museum in three languages Catalan / Spanish / English and some complementary activities within each itinerary to carry out in the museum with your students.

The schools who wish to do so can participate in the Programme of Pedagogical Innovation of the Department of Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
