2010      Proposal for the development of a programme in the Department of Museum Education Programmes of the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, for the implementation of educational activities centred around the topic ‘Values in our life’. The proposal was accepted after the submission of a written proposal on the educational plan. Participated as a special external adviser (A. Christodoulou and E. Kartsaka). The proposal was implemented between September 2010 and June 2011 in 24 two-hour meetings that took place during the three art workshops that the MMCA holds on a weekly basis. The workshops were attended by 440 children aged 4-11 years. The content of the programme focused on the utilisation of 12 living values – selected from UNESCO’s list of values using their social dimension as a criterion – in the framework of the museum education practices applied by the MMCA. It constitutes an innovative application of such topics in an informal learning museum environment. Two day-long training seminars were organised as part of the programme for the 28 museum educators working in the above workshops, in addition to an informative meeting on `values education’ for the parents of the children attending the workshops.
