Ilkhom Art Program for Teenagers with Experiences of Migration


From 3 October 2021 to 14 November 2021


Garage Education Center


Ilkhom* is a program that introduces teenagers with experiences of migration to the work of museums and offers them career guidance in the world of art.

The program comprises seven classes, each consisting of a museum tour and a workshop. Participants will visit Garage, The New State Tretyakov Gallery, The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, The State Museum of Oriental Art, and The Polytechnic Museum. They will see the exhibitions and try various museum jobs, including those of the registrar, the art restorer, guide, and curator.

At the workshops, they will experiment as artists and produce works using various techniques and in different art forms (photography, installation, collage, graphics). At the final workshop they will be offered an opportunity to organize an exhibition of their works.

The classes will explore the idea of difference through art. Interaction, observation, and production of one’s own work can facilitate the rethinking of one’s experience of the museum, as well as the forming of a personal perspective on various subjects and events.

*Ilkhom is a word of Arabic origin and means inspiration or excitement.


The program has been developed for teenagers from 13 to 18 years old. Classes will take place on Sundays from 14:00 to 16:00. Classes are in Russian but can be translated into the language of the participant if required.
