Studio Upstairs – An interactive exploration of flight, journeys and sanctuary
Artists of Studio Upstairs invite you to join them high up in the sky in Tate Modern’s East Room with bird’s eye views of London, to explore, think, create art, look and discuss the themes of flight, journeys and sanctuary. Help create a towering installation, birds and other flying creatures. Explore and consider spaces which offer both sanctuary to fly to, and views of possible future journeys.

The Dragon Café –  Butterfly Statements
A watercolour workshop with the Dragon Café: In many cultures, butterflies are considered variously as symbol of the emotional psyche, faith in oneself and joy in life. Subverting the idea of the butterfly display case, we’ll create butterflies, and display them on the windows of the East Room, against the blue sky and add a message on the subject of mental health and wellbeing.
