Why: The team at Henie Onstad Kunstsenter conducted an analysis about talent programs for teens in art museums today.The concluding report will be launched on the website in Norwegian. For the occasion, we have invited international and national guests to discuss with us the issues raised when framing talent development within the context of museum learning programs. The symposium guests will tell us about their experience in learning departments with programs dedicated to teen creativity and show specific case studies. Followed by a panel discussion such questions will be posed:

What is the definition of talent in the visual arts field and how is talent recognized?
What does it mean to encourage young talent inside a museum and on which age range do programs have greater impact? How can the museum function as an educator of young talent and which programs have succeeded in this respect?
What is the state of young talent programs in the visual arts in Norway?
