Super pleased to announce that we are hosting one of the iconic Live Art Development Agency DIY's this year!
DIY 2020: Doing, Undoing...And Doing Again
Ashleigh Bowmott and Laura Sweeney
A 3-day remote retreat for six freelance producers, curators and arts administrators who have had to undo their present and future work due to COVID-19. It will be a guided staycation which allows space to those who ‘support’ Live Art, to reflect on “business as usual”, get some much deserved socially-distanced nourishment, and the collective development of radical terms and conditions.
This DIY is run in partnership with ArtHouse Jersey.
About the workshop
We will work together for 3 days in a row:
Day 1: Doing
The old ways of working – now we have a moment to reflect, how were we working before? What aspects of our roles felt like they were going well? Which bits were absolutely dreadful?
Day 2: Undoing
A much-deserved day off – a self-care day, where we undo the expectations we have put on ourselves to support as many people as possible, often at our own expense.
Day 3: …And Doing Again
Work will return soon – how can we make changes before we fall back into our old ways? What is within our power to change? What will be our terms and conditions for going to work?
Where? In your house
Money? Each participant will be given a stipend of £140 to take part.
