Tate Modern Workshop

Intergenerational Studio: Making Protest

Kids at a workshop in Tate Modern

Play, build, write and perform a protest of your own

Dismantle cardboard structures to re-imagine and build a new environment or monument. Make a place for debate, play and rebellion and try out different forms of protest.

Think about how you feel, the message you want to send and what or who you want people to remember. Join us for this intergenerational session for families and learn about the history of children, protest and change.

Devised by artist Jessie McLaughlin with the Tate Early Years and Families team.

All sessions are drop-in and will run from 11.00–16.00 with a break for lunch (13.00–14.00).

Artists will lead the sessions from 14.00–16.00 on the days listed below.

Protest and Personal Archives

How can you create an archive for you and your community that records your conversations and questions? Explore the meaning of archives through discussion, drawing, games, poster-making and digital space.

This session is led by animator/ artist Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley.

Saturday 21 March

Protest Banners

Visual artist Rudy Loewe leads a session where we will make large-scale protest banners together using embroidery, drawing and painting. Create art about things that are important to you. How can you use images and text together to create an eye-catching message?
