Get involved in creating with clay, while uncovering and exploring themes affecting our city’s foundations

The People’s Bureau shopping cart takes residence in Tate Exchange between January and April 2017. A space for the exchange of skills and needs, artists Eva Sajovic and Rebecca Davies invite you to take part in their workshop series UNEARTHING.

The project begins outside Tate Exchange in the weeks before in collaboration with artist Shane Waltener – digging up the clay and drying it. In Tate Exchange you can join the project and get involved in creating a collective piece that will be shared as part of a live sound performance.

The collaborative workshops aim to encourage dialogue around issues currently affecting our cities and communities, as they unearth ideas and thoughts on a series of provocations:

  • 25 January: Public/private space and the right to the city
  • 4 March: Spatial Justice
  • 8 March: Restoring the social bond through communal activity & our voices
  • 31 March: Participation as a tool for community/agency/authorship and ‘Place as Muse’, the ethics of working with community

 This event is programmed by People’s Bureau, a Tate Exchange Associate
