Plus Tate aims to support the development of the visual arts across the UK, and to foster a climate where exchange and partnership can flourish.

Tate contributes its resources to a network of organisations and individuals for the benefit of the wider public. This expands Tate’s reach and increases public access to the national collection of British and international modern and contemporary art.

Joining together to exchange ideas, knowledge, skills and resources, as well as programmes and collections, the Plus Tate partners, along with and facilitated by Tate, broaden and deepen engagement in modern and contemporary art across the country.

Partners

The partners share a common ambition: to inspire people about art. Each organisation, like Tate, is undergoing organisational development, often involving a capital project. All are committed to expanding participation in the visual arts and to collaboration and exchange with the network as a whole.

Plus Tate partners to date are:

Exchanging knowledge

Cultural leadership programme

An 18-month bespoke leadership and organisational development programme. Nine of the Plus Tate partners work with Tate St Ives to nurture existing and emerging leaders, and to explore new models of organisational structure and diversity of staff and audiences. The partners are:

Annual seminar

Plus Tate organises an annual seminar bringing together the visual arts sector from across the UK. In 2009 this focused on the cultural Olympics; in 2010 on Art Shorts.
