Award encourages collaboration between primary schools and museums

Minister Bussemaker (Education, Culture and Science) instituted the Museumeducatie Prijs for the best collaborative project between schools in primary education and museums. The Taskforce Museum Education of the Museums Association is responsible for realizing the award. A jury of experts in the field of culture and education determines the winner on the basis of submissions by museums and a visit to the three finalists.

The jury on Elke dag kunst:

The Kröller-Müller’s digital block calendar is present in the classroom every day. The flexibility of the programme gives teachers the possibility and freedom to incorporate the artwork and related assignments and work methods into the teaching on a daily basis. The relatively simple format connects art with local history, philosophy and geography and provides ample opportunities to develop other block calendars in collaboration with schools, municipalities and archives.
