Call for Proposals: for consultant to undertake a major Live Art Sector Review

Deadline for proposals: 31 May 2019

“Live Art, as nurtured so fruitfully within the networks of Live Art UK, provides an opening – an opportunity – for the most extraordinary imaginations, bodies and voices to explore the edges of creative possibility, making art possible in the intimate, unexpected and dangerous spaces of life.” — John McGrath, Artistic Director, Manchester International Festival

LADA, in partnership with the Live Art UK network, seeks proposals from freelance consultants, to deliver an important piece of research into the current conditions, opportunities, challenges and impacts of the UK’s Live Art sector. The Sector Review will be an important advocacy tool for the sector, funders, presenters, producers and other arts professionals.

This Sector Review will assess and report on the elusive yet pervasive influence of Live Art practices and approaches on:

(1) the creative case for diversity;

(2) the nurturing of artistic talent and challenging practices, and approaches to risk;

and (3) mainstream, popular, national, ‘legitimate’ and/or institutional cultures.

 

This project is being funded by an award from Arts Council England and partnership support from member organisations across the Live Art UK network.

The full Call for Proposals, including background, context, timeline, budget and application details can be seen and downloaded HERE.
