Casa da Imagem’s Museum, in Vila Nova de Gaia, is a center for artistic education open to the community. It was designed to be space where, through artistic experimentation, people can learn, reflect, generate and share perspectives concerning the relationship between the individual and the world.

We understand education as an activity which favours the development of these perspectives and which encourages processes of self and community learning processes, based on the notions of gift and reciprocity and inter-professional and intercultural relationships.

We understand art as a broad concept that comprises the specific dimension of artistic production as well as the cultural sphere.

The artistic education at the CCI focuses on the close relationship between experience, artistic and cultural promotion and the educational services.

We will encourage people to explore the relationship between the artistic and the educational standpoints in terms of their own experiences and expectations. If you have any queries, would like to write an article about our work or visit the Museum, please contact us at casadaimagem@fmleao.pt.
