Education in the Museum

Education is a core mission of Museum MACAN. We offer a variety of programs catering to the different needs of our visitors, these programs relate to the art on view and change regularly.

We are committed to making art accessible to the wider public, especially young people and children. Partnering with local schools, we provide educational resource materials for teachers to help engage their students with art beyond the walls of our museum. We are also committed to help develop a healthy art ecology and landscape for art in Indonesia through internship opportunities and other education and training for young professionals that supports the development of artistic, curatorial, and professional museum practices in Indonesia.

Education Program

Educators Forum

Our Educator’s Forum is a recurring gathering of teachers and a vital platform for discussions that center on teaching art in the classroom. This group meets twice a year to see and discuss our exhibitions, with behind the scenes access to curators, artists, and the Museum’s collection. These events are free and open to educators across Jakarta and Indonesia. Interested teachers should contact our Education department at
