DIY 14 is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to take part in unusual training and professional development projects conceived and run by artists for artists. My DIY project LAW IN THE LIMELIGHT is a set of monthly discussion workshops exploring the relationship between performance and law.

“The diverse workshop exercises placed me out of my comfort zone and was just what I was looking for to challenge myself in to new ways of thinking and making.” – Participant in Eloise Fornieles’ You’re An Animal!, DIY 13.
“It was like an ideal version of what I imagined it was going to be. As though if someone told you a storybook version of it, then that would be it.” – Participant in James Stenhouse’s Survival Skills for Artists, DIY 13.
25 DIY projects and 3 DIY+ projects for both emergent and experienced practitioners will take place across the UK between July and November. Together, these opportunities represent a huge variety of subjects and approaches from across Live Art including (but not limited to) audaciousness, sensory perception, the penetrated male, embodied Islam, neurodiversity, ecocentric performance-making, displacement, sadomasochism, sound and blackness, the queering of sport, definitions of diversity, underwater living, sex, grief, ageing, and a pilgrimage in the footsteps of Dracula.
