Circuit: SWITCH Festival

Friday 23 and Saturday 24 September 2016

Produced by and for young people, SWITCH was a two-day free festival of visual art, music, performances and workshops exploring change, action, energy and the unexpected. 
Plug in, switch on, activate!



Young@Tate were free events and activities for 15–25 year olds to explore Tate St Ives and its exhibitions. Previous Young@Tate sessions include #TateFiction, surreal tours exploring The Modern Lens exhibition and RE-A-LINE, a unique performance created in collaboration with artist Sara Wookey.

Artist-led projects and workshops

We’ve been collaborating with a range of artists to experiment with ideas, techniques and create exciting artworks.

Recently we have worked with Oli Raymond Barker, a Cornwall based artist and have had studio visits from exciting artists in residence including: Jessica Warboys, France-Lise Mcgurn and Lucy Joyce.

In March 2016 we collaborated with artist Anna Lucas for a two day Film Workshop to create a unique film piece that will be shown as part of Circuit: SWITCH festival.

In our Digital Abstract partnership project with Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange, we collaborated with artists David Blandy and Oliver Raymond-Barker to create unique works of digital art.

In our three day workshop with artist Linder Sterling in February 2014, we got together with Wigan Young Souls to create ‘The New Crypt Group’.

Pop-Up Tate Penzance

For two weeks in February 2015, we worked with artists Emma Saffy Wilson and Jonty Lees to create an open studio space for people aged 15–25. We took over an empty tea room in the centre of Penzance and invited young people in to express their creativity, relax and explore art.
