Tate Modern's programme 'Small Steps in a Big Space' (Small Steps) was conceived for parents and children from birth to three years, and comprised two sets of three repeated workshops. The chosen title reflected the considered way in which the programme would introduce children and parents to selected artworks from the gallery's vast collection. The workshops took place at Tate Modern during June and July 2003, and involved collaboration between Southwark Adult Education, Tate Modern and a local parent, Bridget Virden, who focused on recruitment and attended each workshop with her own child. The three workshops were called 'Making your Mark', 'Art Picnic' and 'The Magic Wardrobe' respectively. Each workshop focused on a small selection of artworks, and offered parents and children linked meaning-making experiences through music, movement, drama, games and art.
