Christine Azzi is currently museum educator at the Museum of Republic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a visual artist, writer, art educator and embroiderer.
She has been working in the field of museum education for 14 years, having been coordinator of the Educational Sector of the Museum of Inconfidência, Ouro Preto, for six years.
There, she developed projects especially aimed at vulnerable social groups, using art, embroidery and movies as educational tools. Master and PhD in French literature from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, she published the books “Showcases and collections: when fashion meets the museum” (2015) and “The dresses of Frida” (2013).
Her main interest is to make the museum a space of cultural and emotional connections, making art accessible to the most diverse social groups, especially women and the elderly people. She understands that a museum only makes sense if it is part of the daily life and social well-being of the community around it.
