Tate Modern Workshop

Make > Shift With City and Islington College

Take part in making and sharing work inspired by Tania Bruguera's Turbine Hall Commission

Come and immerse yourself in a makeshift interactive world of stories, materials, images, sound and movement as we explore the migration of people around our planet. Hear the stories of those displaced by environmental changes, conflict and persecution and witness the strength and fragility of those that have made these journeys and call this their home.

Enjoy a variety of performance styles including physical, verbatim and forum theatre, circus performance and live music. Watch from the sides or become active participants in performances with students from the School of Creative Arts, City and Islington College, as they transform the Tate Exchange.
