MACRO, rather than functioning as a mere hardware, wishes to present its activities beyond the usual museum spaces as well. As such the MACRO Academy is conceived to function like a software, aiming to offer an educational program, in-depth courses, and training on art and contemporary culture to a wide public. These are offered to Roman educational institutions and projects involved in the integration of foreign citizens and migrants through workshops and conferences.
An educational program and space is dedicated to children, in dialogue with the themes and practices explored by the exhibition program. Encounters and workshops are developed to encourage an accessible and creative experience of the art on display, with artists directly involved in the creation of these activities.
