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, supported by Live Art Development Agency.

SSW have participated in the DIY network since 2017. As a network we understand DIY is all about creating spaces to explore new ideas and test new methodologies. The DIY open call invites ideas for an exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic professional development project that offers something different and is geared to the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists whose practices are grounded in challenging and unconventional approaches, forms and concepts.
