Education & mediation
Whatever your background or experience level with regard to contemporary art, heritage or art history, Manifesta 9's Mediation programs allow you to engage, participate in the dialogue and broaden your outlook. Join us, together with your friends, family or students, for one of our conversational tours, group workshops, community projects, lectures and more.
If you are visiting Manifesta 9 by yourself or with a small group please note that we offer open guided tours every day. No booking required. If you are planning to visit us with a larger group we cordially invite you to have a look at our pre-booked group programs, and feel free to contact us for more information or with any requests.
Get more out of your visit by meeting up with one of our Art Mediators during the many free programs on offer. Programs include introductory tours to each of the exhibition’s sections, opportunities to explore the surroundings of Waterschei, and a chance to fire off your questions at our mediation point. Get a glimpse into new perspectives on heritage, discover the stories behind the historical works of art and join the dialogue on contemporary art.

Manifesta 9 is a great outing for kids, parents and grandparents, this is true every day of the week, but even more so on Sundays when we have a free kids workshop and during one of our four special Manifesta 9 Family Wednesdays. Join us for a day filled with art, performances, workshops and many more activities for children and adults from 6 to 106 years old to explore together. Have a look at the agenda for all the dates and click on the link above for more detailed information.
An ever changing mix of workshops, music, performances, lectures and more is on the menu during Manifesta 9. Check the agenda for all events, dates and times.
Manifesta Biennials are deeply embedded in their local context. The location of Manifesta 9 is an integral part of the project. With this in mind the Art Mediation department of Manifesta 9 has extended the concept of ‘Art Mediators’ to a new category of collaborators called ‘Community Mediators’. Before and during Manifesta 9 our Mediation Team worked closely with various community groups from the region of Limburg in order to gain insight into the particular social and cultural fabric of the former mining region and to embed Manifesta 9 in that vernacular. Manifesta 9 thus creates unique links between community, art and heritage. Read more about each of the Community Mediators projects as they develop on our weblog.
Look, participate and experience Manifesta 9. Our interactive programs can be tailored to the specific needs and capabilities of each person. At Manifesta we are committed to make our projects accessible to everyone. Together with the professional field we offer custom programs for people with physical and/or intellectual disabilities, learning difficulties and others. Please contact us for information on the possibilities for your group.
Who we are? What we think? Why we do what we do? Who we collaborate with? Have a look at our weblog to get to know us a bit better, and follow along with the ongoing process that is the Manifesta 9 Mediation Department.
