Raise Awareness, Educate, Develop Knowledge

The educational and cultural mission of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal is designed to be fully integrated with the museum’s artistic vision; in other words, reach, educate and raise awareness of contemporary art among as many people as possible. Our educational activities, which are planned to tie in closely with temporary exhibitions and presentations from the permanent collection, are intended for audiences of all ages and from all communities, in keeping with the ethnocultural and linguistic diversity that characterizes Greater Montréal.
