CIRCUIT Workshops (October 2016)
During 2016-17 Aid & Abet have been hosting and facilitating a series of drop-in workshops at ELAN as part of Circuit, a national programme led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation aimed towards young people aged between 15-25 years old.
These workshops are shaped to be creative hands-on sessions with an informal atmosphere where young people can hang-out, relax and enjoy the social aspects of creative practice. So far we have facilitated such diverse activities as screen printing, badge making, face painting, animation and sculptural assemblage.
Circuit is a four year national programme connecting 15–25 year olds to the arts in galleries and museums. Led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, it provides opportunities for young people to steer their own learning and create cultural activity across art disciplines.
Circuit involves Tate Modern and Tate Britain; Tate Liverpool; Tate St Ives and partners from the Plus Tate network: firstsite, Colchester; MOSTYN, Llandudno; Nottingham Contemporary; Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester; and Wysing Arts Centre & Kettle’s Yard Cambridgeshire.
