Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art offers guided tours, teaching programs and workshops for children, young people and adults. The teaching is an integrated part of Den Frie’s profile and is planned parrallelly with and in relation to the exhibition program.
Departing from the given exhibitions we offer guided tours, teaching programs, salons, artist talks, debates and seminars. Workshops and special teaching programs are furthermore organized across the yearly planned exhibition program. Den Frie’s goal is to be an innovative and process oriented communicator of contemporary art.
We wish to establish an educational meeting between artists, the art and audience. This happens among other things by focusing on the dialogue and by being open towards the individual’s interpretation and approach to the artworks – no matter age or previous knowledge. The teaching is aimed for everyone with an interest in learning more about contemporary art.
Via a wide range of communication activities Den Frie gives the visitors a possibility to become immersed in the exhibitions and their subject matters and to learn more about contemporary art in general.
Learning, exchange, reflection and the creative process are consistent areas of focus. We focus on these areas in order to secure a fruitful communication benefitting both the visitor and Den Frie.
We continuously document and reflect over the learning and skills that we are co-producers of. Furthermore we actively work to establish collaborations with new users and visitor groups.
