10 Years of DIY

For DIY 10 we invited some of the artists leading DIY projects in 2013 to reflect on their experiences and share their thoughts about the scheme. Featuring interviews with Barby Asante & Delaine Le Bas, Nigel Barret and Louise Mari, Hester Chillingworth and Lucy McCormick, Lois Keidan and Aaron Wright, Ursula Martinez, Jordan McKenzie and Joshua Sofaer. Made in collaboration with Video in Common. We have also made an extended version of the film (15 mins) which features full interviews with the artists. 

About DIY

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.

Get involved in DIY 11 – the full list of projects will be announced soon!
