The Peggy Guggenheim Collection can be a resource for those involved with schools, schooling and school-programs by offering a series of free activities aimed at strengthening teaching skills.

Each school year opens with two events specifically designed for teachers.

The inaugural conference or webinar with education experts is intended to motivate and inspire teachers by elaborating on topics related to teaching and the education system, and by presenting innovative methodologies and new practices.

The conference or webinar is followed by an EDU Open Day to inform teachers and educators of the museum’s educational programs for the current school year.
Following these two events, teachers can participate in a rich calendar of in-depth programs conducted by professionals and experts from different fields.
