Circuit – connecting young people and galleries to spark change

Owner Tate

Date published 2017

Circuit was a national four year (2013-17) programme led by Tate. In the project’s own words “Circuit set out to create better access to the arts for 15 to 25-year-olds. It was built on Tate’s long-term work with young people, and aimed to reach those who might not usually connect with galleries.” This resource details the project findings.

Circuit focussed on the arts and galleries, bringing together a network of arts organisations to test new ways of working and realising the project mission around 15 to 25-year-olds.

Don’t be put off by the “arts” angle – the learning is focussed on working with and for young people and is equally applicable and useful for museums and heritage venues.

There is a project website but Tate’s simple web page sets out what happened, and who was involved  – it’s an exemplary way for a large-scale, multi-partner project to offer a digest of findings and to share resulting resources with the wider cultural sector.
