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.

Our research focuses on fifteen to twenty young people who are involved in the Circuit programme. We will work with them to document their lives over the next two years. We hope to show the multitude of decisions these young people make about themselves, their lives and their present and future lives and the ways in which their contemporary arts engagement is implicated.
