Tate welcomes three small, expert organisations to share their approach alongside one another as a way of promoting genuinely inclusive practice.

Join artists and young people from Heart n Soul, Octavia Poetry Collective and Corali Dance Company as they test multiple ways of taking up space at Tate. Watch, talk and get involved in activities as you move between floors of the Blavatnik Building to animate the concourse areas. Testing, Testing, Testing invites you to think about the very many ways in which individuals and groups might elect to take up space.

Developed by Tate London Schools and Teachers team and Public Programmes in collaboration with Heart n Soul, Octavia Poetry Collective and Corali Dance Company and generously supported by Daytrippers.

This event will be photographed for Tate and our partners.

We explore the relationship between performers with and without learning disabilities, between dance and other art forms, and between professional and participatory artwork.
