Visit the galleries

Free introductory workshops for community groups are available at Tate Britain and Tate Modern.

Tate Modern community garden

The community garden gives local residents in Southwark and Lambeth some quiet time, allows children to explore wildlife, and offers space that families can enjoy together.

Community film club at Tate Modern

Screenings are very informal get-togethers where you come and meet other Southwark and Lambeth residents for a drink and watch an interesting film.

Community private views

Twice a year Tate Local hold Community Private Views. They are a wonderful opportunity for local residents to visit the gallery after hours and see Tate Modern’s special exhibitions.

Tate Modern and You

Tate Modern and You is a publication that is regularly produced in partnership with a neighbourhood or local community group, in collaboration with an artist. It aims to make stronger links with different communities across Southwark and Lambeth. In past publications, artists have worked with local organisations such as the Blackfriars Settlement and Pembroke House. Often acting as a forum for local discussion, Tate Modern and You gets delivered to communities around the gallery and has been doing so for many years.

Look Groups at Tate St Ives

Based on the idea of a book group, the Look Groups project is currently a network of 21 groups throughout the Cornish region who each meet regularly to talk about art, artists and ideas in an informal and enjoyable way.

Look Groups are free and meet in the members’ local area. They are a great way to meet new people and discuss your ideas about art.

To find out about a Look Group near you email lookgroups@tate.org.uk or call 01736 796226.

Online resources

A range of free online resources suitable for all ages about artists, artworks and special exhibitions at Tate. They can be used for activities either in or out of the gallery.
