Small Talk is an opportunity for artists to discuss issues that affect their practice - ranging from conceptual underpinnings through to support structures. Small Talk aims to open up dialogues around Live Art practices and provide a safe space for artists to network and talk together.
In summer 2004 we announced an open call inviting artists to shape and deliver future Small Talk events. We asked for proposals for an evening that would involve discussion, presentations and screenings around current ideas and themes that are of interest to the Live Art sector. Although no longer current, the open call has been left for your reference.
We received an interesting response to the call, but felt that there were not enough suitable proposals to run the four Small Talk events, therefore it was decided that we will reconceive how Small Talk will continue and look at other strategies for discussing relevant and important issues facing artists today.
Please watch this site for future announcements regarding Small Talk.
Previous Small Talk events have looked at the question of Artists’ Platforms and Socially Engaged Practices.
