School Visits for all Ages

Bildmuseet offers free programmes for all age groups, from preschoolers to adult students. In the school programme, your class gets to meet exciting, interesting and current topics through contemporary art. The programme is always based on one of our exhibitions and is led by an art educator. We adapt the visit to the group and want to open up to new experiences and perspectives through the art experience, creation and conversation.

Within the municipality of Umeå, it is also possible to book a free bus to the visit. Read more about how to do this under "Before your visit".

Upcoming school programme. Book here 

Offered August 27 – October 24
This fall’s school program takes inspiration from the exhibition Eight Degrees / Contemporary Art on the Forest.

What is a forest? What is your relationship to the forest? In this school program, we explore the significance of the forest through discussions and creative activities using various materials and artistic techniques. Together, we will look at the exhibition Eight Degrees / Contemporary Art on the Forest, which invites us to reflect on our complex relationship with the forest. The exhibition presents diverse experiences through photography, film, sculpture, drawing, textile, sound, and installation, raising questions about issues such as land conflicts, biodiversity, and the forest as a sacred place.

Booking times are Tuesday-Friday from 9:00 to 16:00 (Fridays are guided tours only). Groups of more than 20 people are welcome to book two separate visits.

For booking requests, email us: konstped.bildmuseet@umu.se
