Tate Modern Workshop

The Word Exchange With Arvon

Meet emerging young writers as they explore and exchange their creative writing

A group of emerging writers aged 18–25 are taking part in a three-day intensive Tate Exchange workshop. Led by artists and writers working across art forms they will respond to prompts from Tate’s collection, and from you the visiting public, to explore new ways of working and push the boundaries of art and engagement in new directions.

Drop by on Thursday 16 February to meet them and exchange words and ideas, then come back on Friday 17 February to experience the results.

This event is programmed by Arvon, a Tate Exchange Associate
