Tate Collective

27 April 2023

Tate Collective launched in April 2018 and is the largest free digital membership scheme of its kind for young people aged 16-25 operating across all four UK Tate sites.

In January 2020 the Rothschild Foundation awarded £150,000 over three years to enable the organisation to provide a rich and varied programme consisting of in-person events, mentoring opportunities and new publications designed by young people.

Some of the highlights from this year have included the commissioning of four young black British artists to respond to selected themed artworks within the Tate collection as part of Black History Month. Their artwork was then shared in a series of posts on social channels.

To assist A-level and GCSE students with their exams coursework guides have been created and can be found here. With the sharp decline in mental wellbeing in students Tate Collective will also release a series of videos to help boost the moods of younger people. The programme is still underway however episode 1 can be found on Instagram. Further information on the Tate Collective can be found on their webpage.
