DIY 15 is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to take part in unusual training and professional development projects conceived and run by artists for artists.
‘I’m so grateful to you for giving me the opportunity to participate in DIY Help The Aged, to meet a delightful band of retrobates and to enjoy some shared fun whilst considering some extremely serious issues’ – Participant in Giovanna Maria Casetta & Helena Vortex’s Help The Aged, DIY 14.
‘Fantastic few days in Folkestone reimagining the economy in the shape of a uterus, reading, thinking, working hard, singing money based karaoke and squeezing in two amazing sea swims!’ – Clare Qualmann, participant in Madeleine Hodge & Rebecca Conroy’s Marricksville School of Economics, DIY 14.
23 DIY projects for both emergent and experienced practitioners will take place across the UK between July and November. Together, these opportunities represent a huge variety of subjects and approaches, including (but not limited to) a-typical perceptions, ‘kidnapping privilege’, virtual reality, ancestral constellations, cruising (for female identified people), family collaboration, sleeping, binge-watching, ugly singing, and a politicised Ann Summers party for womxn of colour.
The DIY lead artists self determine and run their own projects, which includes defining the participants’ application and selection process. If you have any questions about a DIY project, please follow the contact link at the bottom of each DIY project page.
You may apply to as many as you wish, all DIY projects are free to participate in and some expenses may be covered where possible.
Applications are now closed.
