Everything You Wanted To Know About Live Art But Were Afraid To Ask...… is a day of information and advice about Live Art for graduates and emerging artists.

Live Art is an exciting area of practice offering artists new artistic approaches and creative contexts. But it is also an area of practice without clear signposts or career development paths.  Outside educational institutions or other support structures it is often possible for younger artists wanting to develop a professional practice to feel unsure of where to begin. 

Everything …. will offer an introduction to the Live Art sector, a sense of how  things work, practical information about what's on offer and a chance to learn from the experience of more established artists.  The day will cover issues ranging from research and development, to how to stay ‘in touch’, how to be ‘in control’, how to sustain a practice over many years, and what it means to be an artist.

Contributors include the artists Lois Weaver, Joshua Sofaer, Barby Asante, FrenchMottershead, Robert Pacitti, Helen Paris, and Lois Keidan and Daniel Brine (Live Art Development Agency), Manick Govinda and Nikki Tomlinson (Artsadmin) and Sophie Cameron (New Work Network).

The day will finish with a special EEC Waikiki Salon led by Stacy Makishi offering artists a space to network, to talk about their practice and discuss issues that are important to them. 

Ticket prices for Everything …have been kept to only £5 (including bag lunch) and are free to New Work Network members.

Places are limited and must be reserved in advance by sending an email to R.Sharp@qmul.ac.uk or phoning 020 7882 5196.

East End Collaborations 2005 is financially assisted by Arts Council England.
