Talking Shop

Talking Shop

Led by the Live Art Advisory Network (LAAN), Talking Shop is a free event for recent graduates and early career artists (up to three years making work) working in the areas of Live Art and interdisciplinary performance practices, offering advice, information, networking and discussion.
Attendance and participation is encouraged for one or both parts of the meeting:

The first half of the evening includes 15-minute long one-to-one advice sessions for artists who want to discuss their practice with an advisor, small group sessions looking at ways in which peer to peer models can help you maintain your practice, and screenings of the Everything You Still Wanted to Know About Live Art But Were Afraid To Ask DVD. There will also be material to take away and opportunities to meet with other artists.
Places for the one-to-one sessions can be reserved in advance by emailing or you can just turn up on the night.
We advise everyone to come prepared with a sense of what you want to talk about so you can get the most out of your one-to-one session.
We also recommend that everyone downloads a copy of LAAN’s Frequently Asked Questions, Top Tips and Useful Lists, as many of your questions might already be answered there.

The second half of the evening will be dedicated to presentations, questions and discussion about Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts programme. ACE/GFA staff will introduce this funding programme, and provide guidance on the application and assessment processes.

This event is free. Places for one-to-one advisory sessions are limited.
There is a wealth of information available on various different websites, follow this link for downloadable resources.

The Live Art Advisory Network is a partnership between Artsadmin, Live Art Development Agency and New Work Network.
