IBT Study Boxes Study Room Guide

Reference: P2104

In February 2013 the In Between Time Festival invited the Live Art Development Agency to curate a small selection of Study Boxes. Each Box contains between five and eight hand picked books and other materials drawn from the Study Room. Reflecting many of themes represented within In Between Time the Boxes hoped to inspire, excite and intrigue festival-goers who could rummage through them in their own time at the festival hub. Although the selected materials are no longer in their Study Boxes you can use the list of materials within the Study Room Guide to explore the themes and artists during your visit to the Agency’s Study Room. The Study Boxes are a collaboration between the Live Art Development Agency and Spill Festival of Performance. First created for the SPILL Festival in Ipswich in 2012.
