Circuit is a four-year national programme connecting 15-25 year olds to the arts in galleries and museums working in partnership with the youth and cultural sector.

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 has four aims:
1. To make a positive difference
with and for
young people
2. To improve
access and opportunities
for young people
with ‘least access to the arts’
through extending and developing
sustainable networks
between the arts and youth sector
What is Circuit?
How does Circuit do it?
The Circuit programme is designed with and for young people at each gallery, and delivered through activity in four main strands:
A large scale event to attract a wide and diverse new audience
Artistic programme delivered by and for young people
Building sustainable networks with the youth sector to support those the least access to the arts
Reaching wider audiences
A high profile festival (or similar) event for and by young people aged 15–25 years (1 per partner in one of the 4 years), attracting up to 3,000 young people at each site.
A sustained programme of peer-led projects engaging up to 50 young people per annum for four years.
Development of new relationships with up to 4 local youth organisations leading towards project activity engaging up to 20 young people per annum in years 3 and 4.
Development of new digital content to empower and engage young people, create new work and share practice across the gallery education sector.
Young People

Who is

Specifically young people considered to have the least access to the arts

Young people interested in the arts

Global audience of young people 15-25 via digital platforms
Crocus Fields (a respite centre for young people with disabilities) worked at Nottingham Contemporary for 5 weekly sessions. Crocus Fields is a creative place and the young people were already familiar with being experimental and expressive. All of the participants had autism and visited and worked in the gallery and studio with support workers.

4. To change attitudes and behaviours towards and about young people
3. To develop and change practice within and across cultural organisations
Making a positive difference
Circuit has three core values
Circuit's core values underpin the ethos of the Circuit programme activity across 9 partner galleries
Why does Circuit do it?
Young people's ownership, agency and authenticity
Social, cultural and creative diversity
"Circuit brings focus to the wider social and political responsibilities and the role galleries can, or should, contribute to society today, to which young people have a huge contribution to make"

Mark Miller

Research and evaluation are embedded throughout Circuit. The Paul Hamlyn Foundation has provided Tate and Circuit partners with a rare chance to investigate, measure, develop and inspire ways of working through culture for the benefit of young people.
Circuit: Young People's Programmes at Tate Britain and Tate Modern
Young People’s Programmes (YPP) run a free programmes of events, festivals and opportunities for young people 15-25 years to engage with art and artists’ practices. Tate Collective London plan and develop events for other young people to create, experiment and engage with art at Tate Britain and Tate  Modern.

Reaching wider audiences
Evaluation is crucial to the programme aims. A range of data will be captured using different methods; from on and off line surveys to understand profile, motivation, demographic, satisfaction and learning experience of audiences at key events; to critical debate though the digital platform, encouraging participation from wider sector colleagues, stimulated by young people’s work and Circuit staff published blog posts.
Who is

Through a series of national workshops and training events, members of Circulate (Circuit's young peoples' evaluation group) develop tools to evaluate individual progression, support the programme aims and ensure young people’s voice remains central to the programme.

Circuit strands are set up to cross-fertilise and connect to enable a diverse range of young people to participate, contribute and construct cultural activity. These strands act as clear pathways to equal access to opportunities for all young people, without segregation by types of young people. The strands are a way of maintaining a varied and dynamic programme that creates multiple levels of access and informal learning experiences for a diverse range of young people without bias.
