Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Tate Liverpool, Tate St Ives
Circuit was a national action research programme running from 2013 - 2017, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation with a £5 million anniversary grant.
Designed in response to the 2011 riots, it put young people at the heart of creative change and decision making, working with youth and community settings around the country.
As National Manager, my role was multi-faceted and responsive. I led the large research team; developed the collaborative community evaluation framework; managed the budget and reporting mechanisms across organisations; designed and delivered professional development programmes; led the digital strategy across multiple channels and ultimately supported staff and young people implement and evaluate the programme.
I worked across the four Tate galleries plus five Plus Tate partners:
Firstsite, Colchester; MOSTYN, Llandudno; Nottingham Contemporary; Tate Britain and Tate Modern, London; Tate Liverpool; Tate St Ives; The Whitworth, Manchester; and Wysing Arts Centre and Kettle’s Yard, Cambridgeshire.
Circuit reached more than 175,000 young people aged 15-25, including those with least access to the arts.
