Support for live art and experimental performance in Tyne and Wear feels under threat.
We want to open a space for anyone who would like to contribute to a discussion about this, where we will be questioning what support is in place for sustaining and growing live art practice locally, and to ask where responsibility lies. We also want to open the space to celebrate the rich history of experimental practice in the region, using this as a starting point for opening up a conversation about the future.
This is an informal event where everyone who attends is invited to join in this conversation, or equally, you are welcome to listen to the opinions shared.
