Tate Britain Hosts BP Loud Tate 2015
Hundreds of young people will be visiting Tate Britain for an annual special event at 12 p.m. Saturday when the Tate Collective London hosts BP Loud Tate: i.d.
BP Loud Tate is a free day of art, music and performance events especially for people aged 15-25. This year, the event is focused on the question of identity, exploring the way young people derive and express their identity.
The event is curated by the Tate Collective London, an organisation that runs free events and festivals for young people to explore their creativity and connect with art. The Tate Collective is part of Circuit, a national programme that connects young people with the arts in galleries and museums in the UK.
BP Loud Tate: i.d. will feature performances by acclaimed musicians including the award-winning English Grime MC, rapper and producer Novelist and Ms Banks, a young rapper and singer who stands for female empowerment. ThisisDA, Terminite and Shea Burke will also be performing.
There will also be a number of workshops throughout the day, in subjects ranging from beatboxing to filmmaking to street art.
For a full schedule of the day’s events, which also include screenings of submitted short films made on mobile phones and a discussion about the potential to use social stereotypes for positive change, visit https://www.tate.org.uk/loudtate2015.
