educational program

The educational program's main objective is to promote social transformation, defense of democracy and human rights, sociocultural inclusion, civic engagement, gender equity and the advancement of women and girls to leverage female leadership. Pedagogical action and didactic transposition are based on the triad theory, research and practice. General and specific educational programs, projects, research and educational actions are designed to exemplify the Museum of Women's mission.  

To this end, training courses, improvement workshops, continuous development of research on art, culture, history and education will be offered. The program expands access to virtual and hybrid actions for art audiences, women artists, scholars, researchers, educators and other interested people. To ensure broad access and dialogue, a special educational direction was created for vulnerable social segments, guided by the ideal of initial professional training, improvement and career development, with a focus on combating poverty, racism, lgbt+phobia, violence against women and girls of all ages, races and ethnicities. Such values of conduct are the pillars of the educational program and the reason for the existence of the educational at the Women's Museum, thus one of its acts of resistance.

It is noteworthy that all educational axes have specific programs for accessibility, inclusion and integration of special audiences - such as PwD, autistic people and mental disorders, among others - being attended by specialized professionals under a pedagogical program. The complete educational program is divided into three sections, namely: art and leadership, education and advancement, mediation and knowledge. Next, learn more about each core:
