Tate Collective St Ives meet twice a month to collaborate and develop group and individual projects, events, happenings and gallery interventions. The aim is to inspire and engage with other creative people aged 15–25. Tate Collective St Ives is a part of Circuit, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
How to get involved
From knitting to Northern Soul, glitching to hashtagging come along and explore your own creative journey. No art experience necessary, just an enthusiasm for creativity and imagination!

What’s been happening?
In March 2015 we had one of our regular gallery takeover days for creative people aged 15–25. Our young people’s group Tate Collective ran ‘Surreal Tours’ exploring the real and unreal in Tate St Ives’ The Modern Lens exhibition, as well as leading paper sculpture making activities and story telling workshops. There was also T-shirt printing and Cyanotype making (a type of photo printing process), and film screenings from both Pop-Up Tate Penzance and workshops with our friends at Flashlight St Ives.
Hear about Young@Tate from the point of view of Tate Collective member, Felix.
Pop-Up Tate Penzance
For two weeks in February 2015, Circuit Tate St Ives 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.
Digital Abstract workshop
In November 2014 as part of Circuit, Tate St Ives with Newlyn Art Gallery and the Exchange organised a digital workshop in which participants collaborated with artists David Blandy and Oliver Raymond-Barker to create unique works of digital art.
