The aim of the Plus Tate network is to support the development of the visual arts across the UK by fostering a climate where exchange and partnership can flourish.

By sharing practices, the Plus Tate members enable more audiences to participate and engage with modern and contemporary art.

Facilitated by Tate, this is supported with:

  • Topical seminars hosted by different network members across the UK
  • Action working groups
  • Subject specialist sub-groups based on professional practice and skill sharing
  • Annual Leadership Forum for directors

Members

The members share a common ambition: to inspire people about art. This is coupled with a commitment to expanding public participation by truly representing the communities we operate in from our staff and boards to our public programmes.

The network currently comprises 35 member organisations, including Tate, and all share a commitment to working with contemporary art, artists and audiences from major cities to rural locations in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
