The five DIY 2 programmes will, between them, cover practical and conceptual issues and take in new approaches to networking, collaboration and documentation; artists’ evaluation strategies; considerations of costume in performance; building bridges between art and activism; and the processes and impact of time in art.

Anne Bean. NOW
January – March 2004
Anne Bean and five younger artists are spending 90 days investigating time and the notion of capturing time through process based experimentation . Time is an inescapable collaborator in all art (and life) and the participating artists are looking at ways of acknowledging this ‘collaboration’. So far the project has taken the group on many paths, contrasting responses, shared notions, struggles, uncertainties, inspirations, unclarity and great warmth. Participants have been selected by invitation.
