education and participation
Embrace, dialogue, connect, transform
Education and Participation is a cultural mediation program of the Museu Judaico de São Paulo (MUJ). We educate when the program produces experiences, which then allow visitors to build knowledge from dialogue, exchange and debate. Participation speaks to our commitment to inviting different publics to become involved, to become part of the Museum and help in its collective construction.
Based on critical pedagogy, which stimulates creation, collaboration, investigation, autonomy and experience, we develop educational activities to mediate the exhibitions on display, heritage and the territory with the publics. Our objective is to contribute to the building of knowledge on culture, traditions, values, customs and history of the Jewish people and their integration in Brazilian culture, in dialogue and in parallel with other of groups of belonging.
We understand the word ‘public’ in the plural: publics. This means that we recognize and respect differences. Each one of us has a history, a repertoire and specific interests. Based on these similarities and differences, we create programming to make everyone feel welcomed. Students, professors, families, researchers, artists, people with disabilities, identity groups, NGOs and residents from the surrounding neighborhood are our publics.
Based on this programming, the Museum reaffirms its commitment to education as a path for social transformation and integration.
Mediated visits, scheduled in advance and on-demand, activity workshops, storytelling, reading mediation, meetings with teachers, courses and lectures are part of the fixed programming of the Museum. Dialoguing with contemporary cultural expressions, we also have a digital arm, with the production of 2D animated series, free video visits and streaming podcasts, which brings the Museum to people’s homes.
Based on this programming, the Museum reaffirms its commitment to education as a path fo social transformation and integration. With it, we expect to contribute to the democratization of access to cultural goods, collaborate with the Museum education of publics from childhood into adult life and aid in the continuous training of educational and cultural professionals.
The Education and Participation activities of the Museu Judaico de São Paulo are made possible with resources provided by the Federal Law for Cultural Incentive – Law no. 8.313/1991. It is based on an original project proposed by Sapoti Projetos Culturais, in co-creation with the Museu Judaico de São Paulo. In its first year, 2021, the project was sponsored by Grupo CCR.
