Restock, Rethink, Reflect Four - Study Room Guides and Toolkits
Restock, Reflect, Reflect
Restock, Rethink, Reflect (RRR) is an ongoing series mapping and marking underrepresented artists, practices and histories, whilst also supporting future generations. Following RRR projects on Race (2006-08), Disability (2009-12), and Feminism (2013 -15) RRR4 (2016-18) is on Live Art and Cultural Privilege.
The first 18 months of RRR4 involved four artist-led research residencies in LADA’s Study Room looking at the ways in which Live Art has developed new forms of access, knowledge, agency, and inclusion in relation to the disempowered constituencies of the young, the old, the displaced, and the working class and others excluded through social and economic barriers.
Each residency generated a new Study Room Guide and a Toolkit of methodologies, launched in October 2017:
Sibylle Peters – on the young
Live Art & Kids – A Study Room Guide by the artist and researcher Sibylle Peters looking at key issues and works in relation to Live Art by, for, and with, children.
Performing Research – A toolkit on how to conduct research projects with kids and adults using Live Art strategies.
My Very First Piece of Live Art - As part of her research Sibylle invited artists to remember what their first Live Art work might have been. See their short films and Sibylle introductory text on the PLAYING UP website.
Lois Weaver – on the old

The RRR4 residencies, Study Room Guides and Toolkits are supported by, and form part of LADA’s contribution to, the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP), a transnational programme funded by the European Union focusing on collaborative practices with the aim of engaging new participants and enhancing mobility and exchange for artists.
