Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest
Our COOBA objective
We would like to encourage groups at risk of social exclusion, especially Roma youth, to visit and revisit the Budapest Museum of Fine Arts and participate in workshops geared towards them. They will be invited to explore art in unexpected ways in a personal and convivial atmosphere.
The Learning Department provides art education to all age groups, including disadvantaged youth and groups at risk of social exclusion. Our outreach programme also supports initiatives for the mentally and physically handicapped, and the visually impaired.
Museum of Fine Arts
Often described as the “Paris of the East,” Budapest glories in hundreds of museums and galleries. Among the most important of them is the Museum of Fine Arts. It hosts one of Hungary’s most significant public collections: universal and Hungarian fine art from the 13th to the 18th century, prints and drawings, as well as the art of Ancient Egypt and Classical Antiquity.
Budapest is the capital and the most populous city of Hungary. The population is about 1,750,000. Various estimates have put the number of Roma people in Hungary as high as 4–10 percent of the total population, which makes them the largest minority in the country. The current estimate of the number of Roma in Budapest is 120,000. Most Roma have been linguistically assimilated and speak Hungarian as a first language. Nonetheless, they suffer profound social and economic marginalization, stigmatization and discrimination.
