Young People’s Resource Pack on Live Art

Although the Agency does not work directly with schools, in 2009 Clare Shucksmith undertook an internship with the Agency to develop a Young People's Resource Pack on Live Art. 

This resource is intended to give teachers and students background information on Live Art practices and practitioners. It provides stimulus and talking points for accessible debate about Live Art and its relationship with wider contemporary art and performance cultures. The Young People's Resource Pack contains: 

  • Introductory texts about Live Art
  • A web-based journey, leading students through a series of video clips providing an introduction to Live Art
  • Biographies and online resource guides to 5 key Live Art practitioners
  • Class Exercises focussing on the work of these artists
  • Further resources and suggestions for continuing explorations in Live Art.
