Help us to provide a lifetime of learning at Tate

Every year almost 3 million people join in learning activities in our galleries, online and with our partners across the UK. Learning at Tate is for people of all ages, regardless of their level of knowledge or area of interest. We work hard to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to engage with, respond to and learn about the art in the national collection.

Our dedicated teams deliver imaginative and stimulating programmes for a wide variety of visitors:

  • Kids at Tate

The use of gallery spaces, artists and the process of making art are at the core of our learning programme where we aim to provoke curiosity, wonder and questioning.

  • Young people

Tate Collectives provides a platform for 15 to 25 years olds to produce their own programmes using their experiences, ideas and knowledge to explore art.

  • Late at Tate

This popular after-hours events programme welcomes both new and regular visitors to the galleries with opportunities for creative exchanges, debates and discussion and informal learning experiences that develop understanding, participation and interest in art.

  • Adults at Tate

By creating spaces for adult learning experiences we seek to provide a deeper and more satisfying understanding of art.

I had the best day ever at Tate and when I grow up I want to be an artist.

I thought it was a great experience…it really inspired me to do some creative work similar to this at home.

I can’t imagine anyone going home and not feeling that they’d had a most gratifying experience.

This course has been a challenge and an amazing learning curve. My only caveat is that I wish it had been longer!
