It’s Time: how Live Art is taking on the world from the front line to the bottom line
Live Art UK has launched a new collection of case studies that includes an essay by Helen Cole, IBT’s Artistic Director/CEO, on Live Art in a Global Context.
It’s Time responds to the recent successes of Live Art and highlights those artists, projects and initiatives which are re-politicising and re-energising our arts spaces, sharing radical works and ideas with a public who are themselves being forced to do more with less.
The collection of case studies demonstrates that through creative resistance – of patriarchy, of white supremacy, of ableism, of corporate interest and austerity – Live Art can determine its own future, and that of the world around it.
It’s Time includes contextualising essays by Lyn Gardner and Cecilia Wee and case studies by Joon Lynn Goh on Live Art and Solidarity, Mel Evans and Hayley Newman on Live Art and Activism, Abby Butcher & David Sheppeard on Live Art Spaces and Places, Salome Wagaine on Live Art and Representation, Aaron Wright on Live Art and Artist Development, Ilana Mitchell on Live Art and Participation, Karl Taylor on Live Art and Access, Helen Cole and Salette Gressett on Live Art in a Global Context, Mary Paterson on Live Art and Thinking, and Andy Field on Live Art and Money.
