The Family of Man is part of the Steichen Collections of the Centre national de l’audiovisuel (CNA), for which image education and media literacy play a key role. In an effort to provide tools for its various target audiences, the CNA is expanding its educational program with an online teaching platform dedicated to Edward Steichen's historic exhibition.
A legendary collection in the history of photography permanently exhibited at Clervaux Castle and listed in the UNESCO World Heritage The Family of Man addresses many different audiences. This platform dedicated to the exhibition is made for teaching and is meant to provide educational resources for the visit of the exhibition in 3 languages. They are composed of historical texts that introduce Edward Steichen and his work, give the context and some interpretation keys to the exhibition, and propose a wide range of activities that can be done before, during or after the visit. They are thought in a transversal manner, are interactive and multidisciplinary and made for various levels of students from 6 to 19 years old. Some of them explain the exhibition in order to develop a better understanding, others use the collection to talk about different topics, either artistic, technical, social or historical. The registration is free but mandatory to access all material and activities.
