Learning and social programme
The Educational and Social Area of Auditorio de Tenerife was created with a clear wish to bring arts and their creative processes closer to all citizens. It is specially focused on schoolchildren and people at risk of social exclusion. We consider it essential to care about the relationship between artistic and cultural activities and the way they are transmitted to society.
We believe that the more informed viewers are, the better viewers and better citizens they are. Unquestionably, art contributes to social well-being, to recognize the individual and collective identity, to have and practise critical thinking, which is so necessary for mature democratic coexistence.
Hence, through our programmes, we aim to create spaces to strengthen the relationship between art and people. Likewise, it is essential to foster the relationship between contexts and environments for individual development: family, school, the social group to which we belong, our own vision of culture and how we can contribute to others.
In line with this vocation, we organise social inclusion programmes; didactic musical sessions for school children and social groups; we offer artistic training and special guided tours to bring our work closer to the public.
Our Educational Area is associated with the National Network of Organisers of Educational Concerts (ROCE) and the European Network for Opera, Music & Dance Education (RESEO).

The Educational and Social Area works on classroom activities and resources to also be enjoyed by families at home. This is why we propose some educational resources to learn and have fun with the youngest members of the family.
Our last teaching guides are already available. Initially designed for teachers and educational groups that work with us during the performances that the Auditorio has programmed for them. These guides are also useful for families who want to enjoy and learn together through music and dance.

Use your imagination to create and decorate your own musical instruments. Everyday instruments (cotidiáfonos) are constructed with everyday materials or objects. By doing so, you reuse, make crafts and enjoy a good musical time. You can directly use elements such as two pencils or two wooden spoons to play as if they were claves. If you decorate them, they will be much prettier!
You can also construct your own maracas. You just need:
- An empty container (water bottles, liquid yoghurt...).
- Small elements that you can introduce into it (buttons, rice, chickpeas...).
- A lid to close the container and avoid that what you introduced comes off when you shake it. You can use the container lid itself or construct a lid with paper and adhesive tape.
Play this score with your own instrument or by clapping your palms.

Through this programme, pupils themselves can complete the creation of an opera by means of creative writing, music, theatre, visual arts, body language. Through their own experience, children learn to actively participate in the operatic creation and representation process.
Our Theatre Schools are held in educational and cultural centres to provide theatrical training to children, young people and adults. Our aim is to promote quality artistic hobbies and to collaborate with the cultural development of their social milieu. This project is promoted by Tenerife Artes Escénicas (Performing Arts) and managed by Auditorio de Tenerife.
