Our photography, music and movement workshops invite you to challenge your preconceptions about the nature and potential of engagement. Join artists and educators in exploring processes which have been developed by and for people with additional needs, such as the use of sensory devices to amplify or dull ambient sound for those on the Autistic spectrum.
This event is programmed by 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, a Tate Exchange Associate.
About 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning
Following on from 198’s 2016–17 project Possible Futures, this year’s programme in Tate Exchange follows the theme of Production – the seen and the unseen – and sub-themes of Material, Knowledge, Value and Transformation.
198 Contemporary Arts and Learning's mission is to advance public interest in the visual arts, as well as nurture and support the career of emerging, under-represented artists. Founded in 1988 198’s motivation initially focused on the need to provide a platform for Afro-Caribbean and Asian artists as part of the Black Arts Movement. For nearly 30 years this work has evolved and continued to develop projects that consider the work and study of emerging cultural identities, through exhibitions, workshops, education projects and critical debate with artists, thinkers, activists, young people and local and artistic communities. We advocate for diversity within the visual arts and provide opportunities for those wishing to develop careers in the creative and cultural industries.
