Kind Words Spoken

The Live Art Development Agency’s Study Room is one of the most (if not *the* most) important archives in the UK on experimental theatre, performance and Live Art. It has one of the best specialist book collections on these subjects and a fantastic array of DVDs stretching back over 40 years of artists’ innovative practices.

We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie?

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC.
