Professional development BY artists FOR artists
DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run professional development projects for other artists.
Most professional development schemes are conceived by 'arts professionals' and tend not to be geared to the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists whose practices are grounded in challenging and unconventional approaches, forms and concepts. We aim to promote ideas for exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic Live Art professional development projects that offer something different.
The first DIY was run in 2002, and since 2007 has been a national initiative.
