Children from across the country are invited to take part in creating the Tate Movie, the first of its kind, an animation film made by and for children.

It will visit primary schools, family events and festivals and will tour to every region of the UK.

The children will work with artists and film-makers in the truck who will deliver hundreds of production workshops, using great artworks as a source of inspiration. At the heart of the Tate Movi
