About DIY

DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual research, training and professional development projects for themselves and other artists.

We understand that the development of a Live Art practice is as much about the exploration of ideas, methodologies and experiences as training in skills and techniques.

DIY is all about creating spaces to explore new ideas and test new methodologies.

We want to hear from you if have an idea for an exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic Live Art professional development project that offers something different and is geared to the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists whose practices are grounded in challenging and unconventional approaches, forms and concepts.

Over the past 17 years DIY projects have proved to be invaluable experiences for project leaders, participants and partner organisers alike.
