Tate’s group of young creatives, Tate Collective, work with artist Jacqueline Passmore to curate a series of events that focus on audio and visual interdisciplinary performance and participation. This series of interventions, workshops and events in the Tanks will allow exchange, collaboration and a merge of ideas and artistic disciplines organised by and for young people.


Tate Collective: Analogue Vs DigitalTate Modern, The Tanks Saturday 25 August 2012, 11.00 – 17.00

Bicycle powered Zoetropes and projections inhabit the space for the day. Pedal hard to power up visuals and project your own views onto the walls of the Tanks to contribute to the discussion around issues that concern young people today. What do you have to say about ambition, dreams, truth and reality?
