Ravensbourne join the launch of the new Tate Modern

Ravensbourne is the only higher education institution to be selected to join the launch of the new Tate Modern building on Friday 17 June.

We will join a special late night three hour music event curated by young people from the Tate Collective as part of a three day celebration showcasing the very best of Tate.

Lead by our graphic design students, we will supply visuals on the theme of future creativity during a one hour slot from 7:30pm - 8:30pm in the Turbine Hall.

The event will encompass digital technology with lo-fi materials in a range of interactive activities and installations with emerging artists and creatives. Radar Radio will provide the music as part of special audio-visual display.

Tickets are free and open to anyone from the ages of 18 - 24 years old.
