A dynamic programme that focuses on key questions facing art galleries and museums in the twenty-first century

Brought together in a spirit of exchange and collaboration, Tate Intensive participants – from Brazil, India, Italy, Latvia, Macedonia, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, the US, Vietnam, Zimbabwe and the UK – were asked to contribute in an open and honest way to peer-led discussions throughout the week, drawing on their own experiences and case studies from their respective organisations, as well as exploring new ways of thinking and working.
