The Circuit Programme has been developed in response to the youth riots of 2011, to help young people develop their lives in a more meaningful way. It promotes making a positive difference, young people’s ownership, agency and authenticity, and social, cultural and creative diversity.
The programme is built around four-year-long collaborations with galleries around the UK, and Tate needed a way to guide the projects, get partners interacting, show off the outputs and encourage response.
The Tate team called on Error to design and build a website which would grow with the programme, look beautiful and engaging, and be easy to manage and navigate.
Being one of the UK’s most well-known art institutions, naturally it needed to look incredible! This involved a process of which we are veterans – getting lots of very visually minded and opinionated people to agree. No problem!
Technically, the site allows administrative users with different levels of access across the country to contribute; it integrates with Tate’s Brightcove video archive; and connections are encrypted with SSL to meet Tate’s high standards for technical security.
