DIY 8 is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to take part in unusual training and professional development projects conceived and run by artists for artists.
DIY 8 projects are aimed at both emergent and experienced practitioners, and take place throughout the UK. The DIY 8 programmes take many forms, with a variety of focuses this year including ethics and art, liminality, the queer eye, GPS technology, the blurred borders between live art and progressive cabaret, and even professional wrestling.
Participation in a DIY project is free of charge. Some projects may necessitate a financial contribution from participants to cover some expenses.
If you require further information about any of these projects or artists, please contact the Live Art Development Agency at [log in to unmask]
