More info about DIY 10: 2013.

With 23 projects across the country and over 250 participants, DIY generates lots of documentation. On this page is a film we have made about DIY, a written report of all the projects and a selection of video and image documentation (view images above) from various DIY 10 projects.

Interviews with DIY artists

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.
