Digital Excursions or Virtual Excursions enable teachers to enrich classroom teaching without leaving their school, encountering artists and educators in programs designed to support students to develop their own relationship and responses to contemporary art and art making.
Digital Excursions with the MCA are now offered free to all schools
You can connect with us using video conference system (Connected Classroom), Skype, Google Hangouts, Zoom or Facetime.

We currently offer a secondary and a primary program as well as occasional live Q and A style events with artists and curators. See below for more information on these programs.
This (digital excursion) provided students the chance to really understand the conceptual framework and actually be part of it. I was so excited at the uniqueness of the experience and feel it is a way to ignite art teaching in rural and remote schools.
