Tate Collective St Ives 

Tate Collective St Ives are a community of young people in Cornwall that meet up regularly to talk about art, collaborate, create, experiment, plan and deliver new projects for other young people aged 15-25.

Tate Collective St Ives is part of Circuit, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

How to get involved

Get involved by coming to Join Tate Collective St Ives, our regular Saturday meetings in which we collaborate, experiment and design new projects for other young people. The sessions are free with lunch provided and are open to all - no previous art experience needed.  We hope to see you there!

Any questions, we’d love to hear them – contact circuitstives@tate.org.uk

Circuit: SWITCH Festival

Friday 23 and Saturday 24 September 2016

Produced by and for young people, SWITCH is 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 are 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.

Tate St Ives is closed for a major building project so Young@Tate will be back in Spring 2017.

Artist-led projects and workshops

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

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. 

Circuit is a national programme connecting 15–25 year olds to the arts in galleries and museums, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
