Leyla Tahir

Assistant Curator on the Young People's Programme, Tate

Leyla is Assistant Curator on the Young People’s Programme at Tate where she works closely with Tate Collective London, Tate’s resident young people, to produce and commission in-gallery, offsite and digital projects which aim to get young people aged 15-25 engaged with and excited about Tate Modern and Tate Britain.

Before joining the Tate team, from the age of 17, Leyla was a member of Tate Collective London herself, (working on many projects, including curating Source, a collection display and event series exploring parallels between 21 century digital and social media platforms and the salon hang).

She studied BA Criticism, Communication and Curation: Art and Design at Central Saint Martins.
