Swiss Institute Library Rendering St. Marks

On the occasion of its move to the East Village, SI has launched its first formal Education Initiative. SI’s artist-led education programs take place in a dedicated Education & Public Programs space, and provide opportunities for families with children, teenagers, and seniors.

SI’s education programs are unique in that artists- either in current, past, or forthcoming exhibitions- are at the center of the workshops, directly driving forward dialogue and experiences in art-making together with a core group of teaching artists.

SI’s inaugural education partners include GO Project, Little Missionary’s Sara Curry Preschool, Sirovich Center for Balanced Living, and School of the Future.

SI gratefully acknowledges support for Education Programs from the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, and the SI Education Council.

SI Programming is made possible in part with public funds from Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council; the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Main sponsors include the LUMA Foundation and Friends of SI. SI gratefully acknowledges its benefactors UBS and Stella Artois, Swiss Re as SI ONSITE sponsor, Vitra as Design Partner, and SWISS as Travel Partner.
