Liveworks 2020: LIVE EXCHANGE

Delegate Program – EOIs

APAM and Performance Space are working in collaboration to deliver LIVE EXCHANGE delegate program – a series of online events and encounters designed to facilitate connection and exchange in these distant times between arts sector colleagues.

This program seeks to build new connections between like-minded organisations, artists and producers working in experimental practice. The program takes place virtually from Friday 16 to Tuesday 27 October AEDT and includes an array of digital content and networking opportunities dotted amongst the digital offerings of the festival. There will be:

+ The opportunity to see a selection of works made for the digital context and access to conversations and works in-progress through a carefully considered digital platform,
+ A specially-targeted series of online networking events with international and national colleagues,
+ Access to festival artist specific digital content on demand, and
+ Experimental approaches to digital networking.

Expressions of Interest are now closed.


About the Festival – Liveworks 2020
Liveworks 2020 is a radical transformation of Performance Space’s award-winning Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art, responding to the turbulence and instability of our current moment through artistic leadership, creative thinking and supported gathering.

Over five days in October, Liveworks 2020 will occur both in-person and digitally through the festival’s brand-new digital channel Live on the Line. Taking place 21-25 October 2019, Liveworks 2020 will generate important and exploratory conversations about the future, showcase the inner workings of creative development, and present new work that will invite participation and re-imagine our future, through three distinctive streams:

+ LIVE NOW: Ambitious new experimental artworks that gather us together in new ways.
+ LIVE DREAMS: A platform for works-in-progress and ideas-in-development that point towards the future of artistic practice.
+ LIVE FUTURES: A series of public conversations that will explore the future we are moving toward, and artists’ contributions to creating it.
