Apply to lead a DIY project, professional development projects BY artists FOR artists.
Coordinated by the Live Art Development Agency (LADA), DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual research, training and professional development projects for themselves and other artists. DIY understands that the development of a Live Art practice is as much about the exploration of ideas, methodologies and experiences as training in skills and techniques, and past DIY projects have proved to be invaluable experiences for project leaders, participants and partner organisers alike.
For its 16th edition, the DIY selected projects will take place between June and November 2019. 25 DIYs will be supported across the UK in 2019 with project awards of £1,600 each.
DIYs can be about anything you want, but some DIY partners have written specific briefs for artists to respond to, which cover an exciting and diverse range of themes with opportunities for Trans, non-binary and intersex artists, D/deaf and disabled artists, people of colour and many others.
