Artist Opportunity- Schools Workshops and SEN Workshop Programme, Tate Britain and Tate Modern

Open Until:

Posted: 10/03/2022

The Programme

Tate works with new artists every year to ensure
the workshops remain live and reflective of current artistic practice.  At the centre of Tate London’s schools
programme are artists, young people and the collection. We believe that working
alongside artists, surrounded by art works, is an invaluable way of bringing
young people closer to the art.


Tate Britain and Tate Modern are looking for contemporary artists
with a strong ongoing practice.  We are
interested in artists who want to explore the collection through their current
in the context
of regular workshops with mainstream and Special Educational Needs primary and
secondary children. Artists are asked to develop the workshop sessions
through their ideas in lively dialogue with young people and in discussion with the Schools and Teachers team. 


Artists are contracted for
up to 36 delivery days with 11 days additional planning and development time to
support delivery.  Workshops are Mondays
& Thursdays (Tate
Britain) or Tuesdays & Wednesdays (Tate Modern). Rate of
pay is £215 / day, paid through Tate’s Professional Register, tax and NI are
deducted at source.
