Biennale Sessions

On the occasion of the 57th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia offers to Universities, Fine Arts Academies, Higher Education Institutions, and Research Centres a special project.
-  La Biennale di Venezia considers the Exhibition a place where Universities, Fine Arts Academies, and Higher Education Institutions and Research Centres can plan and implement useful experiences for their learning programmes.
-  La Biennale aims to offer such institutions particularly favorable conditions for the realisation of such experiences.
La Biennale offers groups of 50 or more visitors (including students and faculty members) from institutions joining Biennale Sessions the following benefits:
a. special pass granting access to the Exhibition venues for three consecutive days, for € 20 per participant;
b. a location, free of charge, for a self-organised seminar, in one of the Exhibition venues, with basic technical equipment and assistance (press preview days are not included);
c. special attendance and participation conditions for coinciding events and initiatives organized by the Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema sectors as well as by the Historical Archives of Contemporary Art (ASAC);
d. discounts at snack areas and restaurants located at the Exhibition venues;
e. participation in conferences and other events organised by La Biennale at the Exhibition venues;
f.  a special promotion and communication plan, including links to websites of participating institutions.
