Just the headline programme details/content from the website will be used for the Tate website & printed programme.

We now need to start planning the more detailed activities for each day.

Its really important now that all the DMC member involved in the event Action space start to engage and collaborate with our 3 community partners & the provocations they have set:

BETA UTOPIA: Child Rights International Network

  • We are Earth’s custodians, not its owners
  • What is children's citizenship 
  • Who's watching you
  • A world without borders

COMMON LANGUAGE: LionHeart & Black Thrive

  • WHAT IS DATA? Drawing out truths hidden within facts 
  • YONDER: Exploring accents and dialects 
  • CHATBOT: Playing with speech and syntax 
  • EMOJIS: Unravelling a universal visual language
  • (UN)COVER: Disrupting stereotypes 

Our 3 community partners have brought their specific specialist perspective to the table and DMC, OD&M & Happy Finish will work with them to explore the agendas the communities have identified.

The week in the Action space will work like this:

Tues 5 - Getting to know each other and testing our ideas & collaborations
