Why is a Contemporary Art Museum important for individuals on the autism spectrum?

In the museum, children, adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum are able to cultivate skills related to exploration, organization, recording and transmission of information through contemporary works of art. Through hands-on experience, individuals learn to make full use of their senses and enhance their powers of observation, their memory, and stimulate their imagination. Learning can be verbal or non-verbal, at the participant’s own pace, amongst other people or in a solitary fashion, with the aim of liberating free expression and the creativity of all those involved.

EMST invites all interested parties to explore works of art that raise contemporary issues, to learn through the process of engaging with them, to participate and collaborate.

To prepare for your visit, you may download the social story, the sensory friendly map and the sensory friendly signs for individuals on the autism spectrum and their caretakers.

    Educational programs for special schools

    We look forward to welcoming students and teachers from special schools, EEEEK, ENEEGYL, schools with inclusion classes, etc. We will get to know the museum’s collection together, get inspired and create.

    The educational programs are designed for the different needs and interests of these groups and are realized by the EMST Education Department and the organization “TheHappyAct”, once a month in Greek.

    The following structure is usually followed, which depending on the group can be adapted accordingly:
    A) Familiarity with the museum.
    B) Visiting the exhibition space.
    C) Creative workshop
