Frame It was a specially commissioned artist residency at Tate Britain designed to create an inspiring learning resource for children aged 2-5 years to use with their older siblings, parents, grandparents or carers. It consisted of ‘Big and Small’ outreach sessions and workshops at the gallery. The resource was based on the Tate Britain collection, and included visual, audio and multimedia content. The development was carried out in collaboration with local families, in workshops run jointly with the Assistant Curator Early Years, as well as in consultation with Tate Britain’s interpretation team, and with local specialists such as speech and language therapists. The final resource, a magnetic interactive whiteboard was distributed amongst twelve local centres.
