Shrinking Childhoods

Blank Image (for use as default)

During the Summer, over 1,000 children aged between four and twenty attended a series of workshops organised by children's charity Kids Company in collaboration with Tate Modern. For the Shrinking Childhoods exhibition, the work they produced is displayed in a series of Portocabins situated on the South Lawn outside Tate Modern.

In these works, the children aim to communicate their experiences of life in tough inner-city neighbourhoods through replicating their own everyday environments. The exhibition offers a thought-provoking insight into the valient struggles that these young people have been through, in order to cope with daily lives which are dominated by violence and poverty.
