Identity affects everything and everyone, but how is it changing? 

Tate Britain hosts BP Loud Tate: SHIFT on Saturday 12 November, a free day of artist-led workshops, music, film, performance and talks. BP Loud Tate is a free annual art, music and performance event at Tate Britain programmed by Tate Collective London for 15 – 25 year olds. This year’s event focuses on shifts and emerging transitions in identity politics, gender and race.

Highlights Include:
  

  • Music performance headlined by up and coming 23-year-old Nadia Rose, multi-talented creative collective House of Pharaohs and special sets from talented DJ and radio host A.G. and one of Radar Radio’s DJs, Snoochie Shy.
      
  • Workshops include creating an immersive landscape mixing up music and animation with illustrator Jerkcurb; dressing as your favourite comic book heroes in a cosplay workshop with live iPad portraits from Drawing Booth; digital and 3D animation with artist Jack Sachs; and badge-making with the Tate Collective team.
      
  • A panel discussion hosted by creative online magazine gal-dem, who will be joined by Tate Collective to explore representations and perceptions of women of colour in music and the arts, inspired by artworks on display at Tate Britain.
      

A meal deal will be available in the Tate café and a student discount will be available in the gallery shops.
