June: You are Welcome at Tate Exchange, Level 5, Tate Modern was a 4 week participatory event I was invited to curate in which the floor was handed over to the visitors in a collective gathering of evidence. Visitors were greeted by a welcome sign translated into over 40 different languages by Tate staff and invited to tell a story about a time when art made a difference. This was drawn, written, contributed to a sound wall, mapped on the world and voted about on a twenty foot wall. #TateExchange
