Can art make a difference to society?

Tate is taking a new approach to activate audiences through art

Tate Exchange is…

“A space for everyone to collaborate, test ideas and discover new perspectives on life, through art.”

It further developes the Tate brand from democratising access to art, later provoking dialogue about art, to now activating people through art.

The annual Tate Exchange programme brings together artists, partners from within and beyond the arts, and audiences. With its main hub in the new Tate Modern it also spans activities at the other galleries and has a digital strand. The theme in its first year is exchange itself.

In the initial months Tate led programme with artists and the public, now the partners from the arts, health, education and charitable sectors take over and run a participatory programme of workshops, activities and debates.

Art not for arts sake but art to trigger thoughts, emotions, conversations and more about life – an inspiring new approach by Tate. I can’t wait to hear more about how it is going.
