LCC Joseph Kendra: If You Had a Year to Change Something What Would You Do?

The BMW Tate Live Thought Workshop Series 2013-14 was a project that explored the possibilities of change and transformation, through ideas about art, thought and technology. Organised in partnership with theatre company Quarantine, the project asked people to answer a simple question: If you had a year to change something, what would you do? A group of 30 recruited participants met across a series of events between 2013-2014, with invited guests from a wide range of disciplines. The ‘Thought Workshop Series’ acted as a case study for Tate Exchange, a new space at Tate Modern for the public to collaborate, test ideas and discover new perspectives on life, through art. This talk explores how long-term collaborations between institutions, artists and the public might transform the way we think about current artistic practice, learning and the role of the museum.
