LADA invites artist proposals for DIY workshops as part of DIY 2020, with selected projects to take place between June and November 2020.
They plan to support 24 DIYs in 2020 with project awards of £1,600 each.
DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual research, training and professional development projects for themselves and other artists. DIY is all about creating spaces to explore new ideas and test new methodologies. They want to hear from you if have an idea for an exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic Live Art professional development project that offers something different and is geared to the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists whose practices are grounded in challenging and unconventional approaches, forms and concepts.
DIY projects may take any form and can be based anywhere in the UK. Each DIY project is placed with a partner organisation (this year’s partners are detailed below. If a partner organisation has a regional remit your DIY project will happen in that region, if it has a national remit it can happen anywhere.
DIYs can be about anything you want, but some DIY partners have written specific briefs for artists to respond to, which cover an exciting and diverse range of themes/issues, see below for more details). Your proposal does not have t0 relate to any of these briefs however and they welcome proposals of all kinds – provided they meet the assessment criteria (which can be found here).
