15 Minutes With…Jen Harvie and Dominic Johnson

2014 marks the 15th Anniversary of the Live Art Development Agency. To celebrate, we are planning a number of activities across the year, including the “15 Minutes With…” podcast series.

“15 Minutes With…” is a series of short dialogues with some of the exceptional artists and thinkers that LADA has had the pleasure of working with over the last 15 years. Using the lens of the Agency and the occasion of our 15th Anniversary, the dialogues will reflect on how critical some of these shifts have been, not only to Live Art, but to the wider culture of the UK.
