Tate Exchange was a programme at Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool and online for everyone to debate and reflect upon contemporary topics and ideas, get actively involved, think through doing, and make a difference.
Each year's programme responded to an annual theme, and to the question, ‘what happens when art and society meet?’ This was done through collaboration with colleagues from across Tate, a community of Associate organisations, artists and our visitors.
Founded in 2016, Tate Exchange was the first of its kind in an art museum anywhere in the world. It was conceived as an open experiment which grew and changed over the course of five years. The spirit of collaboration, community partnership and experimentation which defined the project has since been embedded into the wider activity of Tate’s Learning and Curatorial programmes.
