Engaging Young People with Artworks

Tate Visual Dialogues Project

This project brought exciting loans from the Tate's national collection to Graves Gallery in Sheffield. Each work was placed alongside Sheffield’s permanent collection, in dialogue with some of its best loved paintings. Using these artworks as inspiration, Youth Forum worked with Leeds based artist, Louise Atkinson, to examine ideas of identity and Britishness. This worksheet outlines Louise's work, and can be used for inspiration for engaging young people with artworks.

As part of this project, Youth Forum went on an overnight trip to London to visit the Tate Modern and Tate Britain and to meet with other project participants. Their project blog Visual Dialogues can be viewed from the link below. Please feel free to comment!

While at Tate Britain, Youth Forum members heard Hannah Starkey talk about her photograph, Butterfly Catchers , one of the works on loan from Tate at Museums Sheffield. Read what she said about her work.

Visual Dialogues is a partnership programme managed by Tate Britain working with Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, Manchester Art Gallery, Museums Sheffield and Tyne and Wear Museums. The programme is jointly funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Department for Children, Schools and Families as part of the Strategic Commissioning Programme for Museum and Gallery Education.
