Tate Modern Workshop

Integration and disintegration: an improvised collaboration With University of Brighton

Jo and Edmund performing ‘Smudged’ at Tate Modern, 2008. A collaboration between University of Brighton staff and students, Corali Dance Company and Rocket Artists

Be bold, passive, instigating or discerning in this workshop exploring encounters with the unfamiliar

An exchange awaits you at Tate Exchange and provides the opportunity to play with the unwritten rules of encounters, with both familiar and unfamiliar people. Materials, mark making and movement exchanges can spiral into episodes of creativity with the possibility of no known ending. Will it be futile or revelatory? What can we learn about ourselves and each other through an exchange with a stranger? Reflect on the ‘rules of engagement’ forging a momentary, improvised collaboration. Having found moments of assimilation or rejection, ponder on the notions of success and failure, beginnings and endings.

About MA Arts and Inclusive Practice, University of Brighton

MA Inclusive Arts Practice, at the University of Brighton, is aimed at artists or individuals from related fields who are working in healthcare, education, the arts or the community sector. The course aims to equip students with the necessary skills to initiate and manage truly inclusive arts projects with diverse and marginalised groups, for example those with learning difficulties or experiencing social exclusion due to economic or health reasons. Past students have worked with a range of individuals and participant groups including people with learning disabilities, children, young people, elders, those experiencing homelessness, asylum seekers and youth offending teams. They have contributed both locally and to international projects in countries including Romania and Ukraine. We value and encourage work across a range of art forms, including visual art, design, illustration, performance, film and photography.
