From the outset biennials have been conceived as providing an alternative to the models of display and knowledge production that were traditionally formed within the museum1
Education programs at the Biennale of Sydney engage with current thinking in contemporary arts practice to promote and stimulate a deeper understanding of biennials and their unique exhibition and curatorial models.
Through talks, tours, resources, workshops and panel discussions, schools and educators can gain insights into one of the world’s longest running international contemporary arts festivals and its presentation of diverse artists and artworks within the city landscape.
