An important part of the VV Foundation’s activities, with the aim of promoting the formation of an intellectually richer society, is to create a modern and thematically relevant educational programme. The founders of the Foundation believe that with the help of the contemporary education programme it is possible to create relations between the visitor and the artists or industry professionals and to improve the experience of the exhibition visitors by offering both intellectual educational activities and opportunities for practical experience. The founders of the Foundation believe that in Latvia it is necessary to promote the availability and education of contemporary art for all members of the society, therefore such events are organised in every exhibition that is supported or organised by the VV Foundation, and they are available to visitors free of charge.
The VV Foundation regularly organises discussions with art professionals, including such that reflect the activities of the PAiR residency. Extensive educational programmes for visitors of different ages are also provided in the exhibition “Theatre of Orgies and Mysteries” by Hermann Nitsch and in the exhibition “Ravine” organised by the Foundation.
From 10 to 16 August 2020, Cēsis Pluriversity – Summer School No. 1 – took place in the town of Cēsis, focusing on the possible connections between geography, design and philosophy. The VV Foundation supported this summer education programme, which emphasised the need to allow for pluralism in the acquisition of knowledge, which could give impetus to new ideas about life, people, common goals and new challenges for humanity.
In 2019, the VV Foundation implemented a discussion cycle “VValk The Talk” on various topics relevant to the industry, as well as supported the organisation of the ISSP Summer School.
