Mandate

DHC/ART Education offers inclusive programming and innovative interpretive tools that encourage exploration and understanding of contemporary art. In providing platforms for exchange related to the exhibitions presented by the Foundation, we encourage critical dialogue informed by diverse perspectives.

Group Visits and Workshops

We invite any group of ten people or more to reserve a guided visit with one of our educators. These visits are designed for groups of all types: primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, community centres and language schools, as well as the general public. Visits last 1½ hours.

Groups who reserve a guided visit of the exhibition Ed Atkins: Modern Piano Music also have the opportunity to take part in the art workshop Repositories (PDF), designed by Jenny Lin and DHC/ART Education.

Unique to each exhibition and developed in collaboration with Montreal-based artists, our workshops complement participants’ gallery experience through hands-on experimentation. A visit combined with a workshop lasts two hours.

Reservations

Reservations are required for all visits with a DHC/ART educator; please consult our online booking calendar and make your reservation with our reservation form.

Please note that groups planning a visit without a DHC/ART educator are required to contact us in advance in order for us to advise security prior to arrival.

Educational Tools

MovementsThe goal of this short document is to assist visitors in exploring the ideas presented in the exhibition in more depth. Movements: Ed Atkins (PDF) can be used as inspiration for a pre or post-visit discussion, or even as an assignment based on the visit.

Blog: DHC/ART educators regularly contribute to our blog with reflections on various subjects related to the exhibition, the artists, particular visits or workshops, art education, contemporary art practice, etc. Please share information about this lively and thought-provoking tool with your groups!

Ballad invites you to write, using the markers and acetates provided, a single word, stanza, or stream of consciousness in response tothe exhibition.
