Eglé Nedzinskaité

Curator of educational programs at the National Gallery of Art (Vilnius)

Since 2009 Eglé Nedzinskaité has been the curator of educational programs at the National Gallery of Art (Vilnius), a subdivision of the Lithuanian National Art Museum.

In 2019 she was awarded the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture award for educational projects for children under 13 years old. Since 2020 she has been the curator and mentor of the educational project That Strange Art for teenagers. The project aims to give young people hands-on and full experience of what it is like to be an exhibition curator, architect, designer and manager. The result of this year-long project will be an exhibition at the National Gallery of Art wholly created by teenagers. From spring 2019, she has been the creative agent in work with schools, children from difficult social backgrounds and communities around Lithuania in projects by Asociacija “Kūrybinės jungtys”.

From autumn 2019 onwards, she has been the coordinator of the EU Erasmus+ project AMUSING (Adapting Museums for educational Inclusive Goals)—aiming to share experiences between Spanish, Italian, Greek and Lithuanian educators on how to make schools and museums more accessible for visually impaired children and adults.

At the National Gallery of Art (Vilnius), she has co-curated exhibitions for the blind and visually impaired titled BLIND DATE I and BLIND DATE II, worked as the co-author of educational workshops Pictures of Senses, and curates the educational program Let’s Meet at The Museum for people with dementia and Alzheimers.
