We’re about to host our first Thought Workshop as Creative Researcher for BMW Tate Live Thought Workshop Series…

Quarantine was established in 1998 by directors Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea with designer Simon Banham. We make original theatre, performance and public events with and about the people who are in it. Whatever form it takes, our work begins and ends with the people in the room. Over the last 20 years, we've collaborated with a shifting constellation of artists, performers and people who've never done anything like this before. Our work seeks to create the circumstances for a conversation between strangers...

We’re about to host our first Thought Workshop as Creative Researcher for BMW Tate Live Thought Workshop Series…

Posted: 17 July 2013

If you had one year to change something, what would you do?

Quarantine are exploring the idea of transformation as Creative Researcher for BMW Tate Live Thought Workshop Series. From July to March 2014, four Thought Workshops will take place. 30 people drawn from all over the UK and Europe will explore, discuss and question notions of change in society through art, technology and thought.

Each workshop will take a different form in response to the group and the changes being proposed – they might, for example, involve journeys or visits or lectures or eating together. Each workshop will build from the previous one and the people in it will drive the momentum for change forward.

With a group of participants aged from 17 to 72, from backgrounds as diverse as GP, school student, television producer, mother, language school director, pensioner, fashion designer, neuroscientist and many more, we’ll investigate the changes proposed and find some possible strategies. Whether personal, local or global proposals for change, we’re really excited to work with them. We’ll probably fail – we know that’s part of the project – but we’ll all learn something on the way, and take some steps towards making change happen…

The first workshop takes place on July 27th at Tate Modern. Throughout the project, documentation will be made available online for the public to engage with and follow. For more information, and to follow a blog on the project, see  www.tate.org.uk/thoughtworkshops
