Making More Space is a multi-disciplinary, multi form event, bringing together ideas around site based performance practice, the impacts of wild or outdoor spaces on human psychology and alternative educational models in arts contexts and collaborative practice. The event takes place at The Richmond Yacht Club, Eel Pie Island, London
The event responds to a three year artist-development programme run Nic Green and Artsadmin called Make Space (2013–2015), developed to offer young artists the opportunity to explore relational performance practices in sited contexts. The event will serve to expand of on some of the values and practices embedded in the project, and to further understand the relational potentials between them, for imagining the futures of alternative artist development and learning models. Making More Space has been curated through a collaborative process with Nic Green, Sam Trotman, Sarah Phillips and Joanne Matthews and past Make Space participants.
Key themes we look to address include:
- Embodied learning/ Tacit knowledge
- Sited Performance Practice
- Outdoor education/ The effects of wild or outdoor spaces on Human Psychology/Ecopsychology
- Collaborative performance practices between human and other-than-human living entities
The event will include contributions from leading practitioners and artists, performances, discussion, shared meals and Phil Collins Karaoke.
