Action Recipes: A Toolkit of methodologies on Live Art and Ageing



As part of Restock, Reflect, Rethink Four, on Live Art and Privilege, LADA invited artist and activist Lois Weaver to undertake a residency exploring Live Art practices and methodologies in relation to working with older individuals and communities. This residency built on LADA’s collaborations with Lois on Live Art and Feminism, particularly in relation to older artists, and to her own work on What Tammy Needs To Know and the Wellcome Trust People Awards.

As part of her residency, Lois produced Know How, a Study Room Guide looking at key issues and works in relation to working with older constituencies and Action Recipes, a toolkit of methodologies for working with older constituencies.

You are able to request a hardcopy of the guide – select hardcopy, rather than PDF.

The RRR4 residencies, Study Room Guides and Toolkits are supported by, and form part of LADA’s contribution to, the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme(CAPP), a transnational programme funded by the European Union focusing on collaborative practices with the aim of engaging new participants and enhancing mobility and exchange for artists.
