Cooperation across four schools
The new school year is slowly approaching and with it the second part of the international educational programme starts too. Again it will connect twenty high school students from four countries by means of common creative activities. Meet our partner schools from Olomouc, Cracow, Bratislava and Pécs.
During 2018 and 2020 lecturers from education departments of Olomouc Museum of Art, International Cultural Centre in Cracow, Bratislava City Gallery and Janus Pannonius Museum in Pécs work on the international educational programme for high school students. The key factor of its successful progress is also cooperation with chosen teachers who are, along with museum lecturers, mentors of students during the project. “ArtCoMe allows us experience a new form of long-term work with a specific school that is also very intense and different from our usual programmes we offer to school groups,” pointed out Terezie Čermáková, author of the international educational programme concept. “That is why the close partnership is very important for us. I’m glad our team works across all four cities and that the cooperation on the project creates friendly and creative atmosphere,” added Čermáková.
Before we enter the school year 2019/2020 and welcome bright new student groups, let us introduce partner schools whose teachers and students will be part of the ArtCoMe project in the upcoming months.

The Evangelical community of Krakow, represented by Jerzy Samuel Bandtkie Educational Foundation, is the founder of Mikołaj Rej VII Private High School. Our school, therefore, refers to the rich tradition of educational activity of the Protestant establishment, dating back to the Reformation period. We are guided by the spirit of searching for scientific truth and we are not influenced by any ideology or religious doctrine. We want young people to be brought up in the spirit of freedom and the pursuit of truth, so that the acquisition of knowledge is combined with critical reflection. Our school is open to everyone, regardless of their social background and religious affiliation, it teaches tolerance and respect for different views.
