Curating a Culture of Respect/Des Maux-Des Musees-Des Mots began as a pilot FRAME project between the Museums of Strasbourg, France and the Clark Art Institute of Williamstown, U.S.A. with the goal of raising awareness about and preventing violence for the next generation.
This project aims to utilize engaging with art as a vehicle to expand awareness about aggression and compassion, human relationships, perspectives and choices. This website connects young people and schools with art museums as a place to explore and contemplate contemporary social issues and problems – in this case aggression, violence and bullying.
Explore this site to share experiences, instructional approaches and to learn from the cultural differences and similarities about the problem of violence.
