Education

Jewish Cultural Heritage project

Over 3 000 events until April 2016 - the Museum's educational and cultural program for 2013-2016

Workshops, lectures and panel discussions, activities in urban space, temporary exhibitions and a mobile exhibit traveling around Poland – are merely some of the educational projects in the new program of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, implemented thanks to Norwegian and EEA funds. Over the course of the next 3 years over 350 000 people in Poland and abroad will take advantage of our events.

The main aim of the Jewish Cultural Heritage project is to enable the public to draw inspiration from the thousand-year historic experience of Polish Jews. Our goal is to promote tolerance and to educate young people on how to live in today’s multicultural society in which different groups, customs, practices and religions function side by side.

Activities organized within the framework of the project are largely addressed to children and young people from Poland and other countries, as well as teachers and educators. Persons with limited access to culture, including those with disabilities, are also an especially important target group.

The project will involve various types of educational formulas: free programs for schools and teachers, photography, theatrical and music workshops, meetings, panel discussions, city initiatives, exhibitions, artistic residencies, publications and applications for mobile devices. Internet projects such as a virtual tour of the Museum and contemporary Jewish Warsaw or an interactive educational  game for children are a special part of the project.

Supported from the Norway and EEA Grants by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
