Our Work


We produce high quality work across different artforms Рevents, exhibitions, commissions, digital platforms, artefacts and residencies in order to showcase outstanding work and reach wide and diverse audiences. As part of this strand, we are particularly interested in developing challenging concepts and working with partners and artists who push boundaries, challenge stereotypes and question traditional viewpoints about refugees and migrants.

The Traces Project

An untold history of contributions to arts and history from men and women who have sought safety in the UK from conflict and persecution.


An ongoing programme of activities and commissions across art-forms, often curated in collaboration with other arts and cultural organisations.

We present an ongoing offering of events, as part of projects we support, artists’ work we commission and learning we are constantly capturing. Some of our ongoing productions where we meet our audiences are yearly Refugee Week programmes, biennial Platforma Arts networking partnerships and Who Are We? Project at Tate Exchange.

Quality, collaboration, exchange and participation are what our partners and audiences have come to expect. When delivering the events we work with resourcefulness and principles of sustainability, and to offer joy and enjoyment.

Who are we?

Who are we? is a cross-platform programme at Tate Exchange, Tate Modern, spanning the visual arts, film, photography, design, architecture, the spoken and written word and live art.

Everyday on Canalside

Everyday on Canalside is a participatory arts neighbourhood programme with residents on the Canalside Estate in Hackney.
