An exciting opportunity has arisen from the conversations we had when planning this residency - the opportunity to participate in the Live Art Development Agency's DIY project - a series of workshops by artists for artists. We have suggested one that specifically addresses the potential for enriching Live Art as a form through a multiplicity of cultural influences, however traditional and we have some artist proposals to look at - so a day of reading and discussing ahead of a selection meeting in London.
A DIY project would seem the perfect complement to and progression from this Residency. An opportunity to build on our initial offer and to explore the flip side - not persuading culturally diverse artists to consider this artform, but directly to shape the potential future of the form itself. A good legacy for this brief residency!
