Re-Observing Juvenile Delinquency at Tate Exchange
Date Created: 19th Oct 2016
John Hansard Gallery (JHG) in partnership with Southampton Youth Offending Service (SYOS), Compass School, and In-Focus Training Ltd, are creating a programme of activity for February 2017 as part of the Tate Exchange Programme.
The programme will realise a number of objectives including an exploration of the perceptions and issues surrounding youth crime, through the Mass Observation Archive Report on Juvenile Delinquency (H.D Willcock, 1949) and parts of the Tate Collection, including the specially commissioned Tate Exchange Provocations, by Tim Etchells.
During the development stage of this exciting project, young people will engage in a creative weekly learning programme which will provide them with qualifications achieved through Arts Award and opportunities to develop life work skills, supporting their re-engagement with learning.
During the delivery stage, young people, artists and youth offending service workers will work with visitors facilitating interactive workshops over two days, which will be delivered in Level 5 of the New Tate Modern, in early February 2017. Details and dates of these workshops will be announced later in the year.
This project is funded by Artswork, and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, with additional support from the Winchester School of Art Research Centre for Global Futures in Art, Design and Media.
