Drop by, join in and explore alternative ways of taking up space at Tate

Open to all ages and abilities and led by both disabled and non-disabled artists, this event champions genuinely inclusive activities for everyone.

Young artists from Heart n Soul and Corali Dance Company will be joined by artist Judith Brocklehurst to test multiple ways of taking up space at Tate. Get involved in activities as you move between the floors of the Blavatnik Building.

This event will be supported by a British Sign Language (BSL) Interpreter.
