Particularly, MAMbo Education Department created an e-learning path aiming to introduce the Identity of the Contemporary artistic Creation through the idea of Experience as an Educational Approach to Art. Three young artists, coming from the MAMbo Contemporary Art Collection, suggest useful activities to understand their poetics and their feelings in the Modern Age. Purpose of the project is to involve a class or a group of students in a creative and personal re-elaboration of the given proposals.

Didart is a project conceived by MAMbo Education Department (Project’s prime coordinator), financed by the European Commission – Programme Culture in the category Visual Arts, as the best proposal for Contemporary Art Communication and Education.

Didart’s main purpose is to approach the public to Art and its places: protagonists of this project are Museums and Institutions which build up a dialogue with Art and Education.

The first edition (2002-2003) establish the network, realized the first Documentation Centre about Art Education in Reggio Emilia and created the website , that collects and spreads out all the activities linked to the project and its research fields.

In its second edition, Didart compared new Methodologies to individuate the best practices, to experiment a direct approach on Art and artists’ Poetics. Final product of this experience was the educational exhibition Artists’ Houses, that moved into all the partner Museums’ seats.

The third edition of Didart started with the reflection developed by this European network about the figure of the Museum Educator, the importance of his role in the creation of a New Museum as a privileged place in which everybody can share and participate in the different knowledges. Didart International workshop began with a 12-days programme scheduled a series of theoretical meetings about Museum Education, History, Methodologies, specialist publishing and workshop experiences, which also took in consideration the non-verbal language of the body, the graphic communication and the artistic practice.
