We hope our unconventional museum learning experience evokes a sense of wonder in students. In the years leading to the building’s opening, we will expand our school outreach effort to showcase the museum as a resource for educators and students.
Since its launch in 2016, M+ Rover: Travelling Creative Studio, a school and community outreach programme, has featured an annual thematic exhibition and provided a setting that emphasises collaboration between students and creative practitioners from different disciplines. M+ Rover is like a space expedition to an unknown planet, taking students into uncharted creative territory. The programme offers an experience of creative processes in contemporary visual culture, encouraging interaction, dialogue, and the exploration of new possibilities.
Before the M+ building opens, with the mission to deliver a museum learning experience to students and teachers, M+ Rover is again partnering with creative practitioners and taking to the road during the academic years 2019–2020 and 2020–2021. M+ Rover 2020 will visit local primary schools from Monday 3 February to Friday 3 July 2020, offering students and teachers new content and participatory learning experiences including games and exhibition tours. The programme is free and specially designed for primary schools.
Interested primary-school teachers are welcome to register for the teachers’ briefing session; application details will be posted online in September 2019.

M+ Outreach Access 2018
‘M+ Outreach Access’ is M+’s first programme particularly designed for students in special schools. Through an interactive outreach workshop and a customised guided tour, students are encouraged to discover different ways of understanding contemporary visual culture and to explore their own relationship with it.
