15 Feb - 22 Feb 2018

Collaborate and be part of Tate Exchange with Peckham Platform
Are you interested in working with galleries and working in collaboration with other UAL students? Do you want to learn more about social arts or creating events for the public? We want you to work to a brief and come up with ideas (workshops, events, activities, interactive artworks, performance, music etc.) and then deliver these ideas as part of Peckham Platform’s Tate Exchange at Tate Modern!
Who can take part: eligibility criteria
This project is run by Careers and Employability. We help UAL students to make a living doing what they love and strive to support students who are underrepresented in the creative sector.

Due to the way this project is funded, in order to apply to take part, you must:
  • Be currently studying an undergraduate course at UAL, and
  • Come from a family where neither parent/ guardian has completed a University degree, and
  • Be enrolled as a home student (UK)
If this doesn’t apply to you, don’t worry Careers and Employability run lots of employability and enterprise events that are open to all: see the events here.
Deadline for booking a place: 11th February 2018 

Is there funding to cover my costs? / Will I be paid?
All students taking part in this project will receive a bursary to cover any expenses they may incur. The bursary will be £50 per day for visit and research days (6 days total = £300).
Students will also be employed and paid to deliver their idea at Tate Exchange (paid at or above the London living wage, £10.20 per hour).
What’s involved?
The 4-day Peckham Platform Tate Exchange event will be based around an exhibition, SERP.
This project will involve taking part in visits and workshops to learn more about the SERP exhibition, Peckham Platform and Tate Exchange. You’ll then take part in an intensive Ideas Studio where you’ll work collaboratively to generate ideas, refine them and then make them happen. Finally, you’ll present your event / ideas to the public at the Tate Exchange.
Themes of the SERP exhibition (the starting point for your ideas): The role of art in our lives, public engagement, the erosion of arts in education, memorabilia, the role of the artist, reinterpreting archives, social arts, the current politics of art education.
The project will take place on the following dates and times, in order to apply you must be able to attend these dates. However, if you have caring responsibilities, unavoidable commitments or circumstances that mean you won’t be able to attend these dates please get in touch and we’ll do our best to accommodate this.
Research / visit days: 14.00-17.00 on the following days: 21 Feb, 28 Feb, 7 Mar, 14 Mar.
Ideas Studio: 10.30-17.30 on 19 and 20 March
Delivering your idea at Tate Exchange: 19, 20, 21, 22 April*
*note: depending on the idea you come up with and how you decide to run this, you may not have to attend every day at Tate Exchange. The timings for your contribution to Peckahm Platform’s Tate Exchange will be decided by you.
