Cultural training of teachers from the early years of basic education : what museums in the city of Rio de Janeiro offer ?

Abstract : This thesis seeks to understand the contribution of art museums in the city of Rio de Janeiro as a locus of cultural and aesthetic training for teachers in the early years of basic education and the relationship that teachers establish with these cultural spaces. Understanding cultural training as a right and part of teacher training implies assuming diversity, continuity and mediation as part of ethical, political and aesthetic principles of humanizing teacher training. Cultural formation is configured in an intentional, continued, mediated, reflexive and shared process that provides aesthetic experiences so that cultural formation is not just a veneer that represents only one voice. With the support of authors from the field of Education and Museum Education, the concept of aesthetic and cultural formation is approached from a theoretical review, from the perspective of teachers and museum educators. An online questionnaire, interviews and document analysis were the data production tools used. The research findings indicated that, despite an underutilization of the art museum as a place of formation, the investigated museums offer activities that prioritize the authorship and creativity of teachers in a process that involves listening and the permeability of knowledge. As for the teachers, it was possible to observe that the concept of cultural training is not clear and, in general, the idea of access to legitimate cultural goods prevails as a model. This perception affects the relationship that the teacher establishes with the city's cultural facilities and the compensatory vision that runs through his practice with children. However, it was also possible to observe the emergence of dissonant voices that associate a cultural formation with a sensitive formation that transforms the subjectivity of the subject and privileges diversity and otherness.
