Information, Advice and Research

Ongoing Opportunity

The Live Art Development Agency offers information and advice on Live Art projects and practices through this website, by phone and email, and through events such as Talking Shop and individually tailored meetings with UK and international curators, researchers and organisations.

The Live Art Development Agency provides access to research facilities through its Study Room (London), which houses an ever expanding video and DVD collection, a wide range of publications focused on Live Art, visuals arts and performance, British and international arts magazines, information on artists and organisations and a general resource section which includes materials and information on facilities, training, networks, support structures, a range of funding schemes and professional development opportunities. Research visits can be arranged by appointment.

Further Advice

We recommend that individual artists and groups seeking information and advice on their own work and specific projects should book research time in the Study Room and arrange an advisory meeting with Artsadmin.

The Live Art Development Agency also offers support to London-based artists as part of the Live Art Advisory Network.

Book the Study Room

Our key resource which provides a research space for artists, academics, students and other curious folk. Containing over 8,000 items, including out-of-print books and rare documentation, our Study Room, in Bethnal Green, is the world’s largest collection of research materials on Live Art.
