MUS Platform is an educational platform in the field of contemporary fine art. It focuses on organising of special programmes and creating concepts of educational programmes for galleries, different types of cultural institutions and individual projects. Students and lecturers of secondary schools are offered consultations with art professionals and/or invited artists.
MUS Platform prepares special programmes for various types of gallery institutions, festivals and individual projects. Since 2012 we have created educational activities for the Jindřich Chalupecký Award, since 2015 we have been designing educational programme for the Festival 4+4 In Motion, in 2016 we have conceived the educational programmes for MeetFactory in Prague. In the past we have also collaborated with the community centre Plechárna on Černý Most and Fotograf Festival (2015).
Our workshops are based in particular on current technologies and their application in the artistic practise. Workshops are sponsored by Wacom company and Amos Software that provide applicants with graphic pads for free. Among the authors who organised MUS workshops belong artists such as David Böhm, Jiří Franta, VJ Kolouch, Martin Búřil, Veronika Vlková, Vladimír Strejček and Vladimír 518.
In the academic year 2017/2018 we have started offering a regular programme for the current exhibitions in the most significant galleries in Prague (Gallery Tour 3 v 1 with the National Gallery in Prague, Galerie Rudolfinum and DOX, Centre for Contemporary Art).
Among other activities belong presentations at primary and secondary schools across the Czech Republic and supporting projects in collaboration with students such as creating a video History of Art in 4 Minutes for the art series UM! on Stream.cz (with the Grammar School Na Zatlance). You can have a look at the video here. Another recent project is the project of students from Grammar School of Jan Kepler and Grammar School in Cheb as part of the Festival 4+4 Days in Motion.
Since autumn 2017 we offer regular tutorials for students and lecturers in the Prague Creative Center. Part of the space is also the new office of MUS Platform.
