Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art 2020

Across LIVE EXCHANGE we have crafted a selection of online events and encounters, providing participants with:
+ opportunities to see a selection of works made for the digital context
+ access to conversations and works-in-progress through a carefully considered digital program
+ a series of online networking events, roundtable discussions and artist meetings
+ support in brokering connections between artists, organisations and colleagues

IMPORTANT: As a registered participant, you will receive daily emails during the festival, containing an overview of each day’s activities and links to online event platforms each day and any previous On Demand sessions from previous days. If you’re unable to locate these emails, please check your SPAM folder, and if you still can’t locate, contact the team at

We welcome you to contact us to discuss any access needs (such as live captioning or AUSLAN interpreting) for any events, or to receive a copy of this program in an alternative format. Please email

Engaging in LIVE EXCHANGE is free, however participants are responsible for purchasing tickets to Liveworks Festival performances and events, both online and in person. If you are physically located in Sydney, we encourage you to attend Liveworks events in person. All LIVE EXCHANGE events are held online.

Most LIVE EXCHANGE events are hosted on Zoom, a widely-used videoconferencing application. As a registered participant, if you already have a Zoom account, all you need to do to join a session is click on the link sent by APAM. If you don’t already use Zoom, you’ll need to sign up for an account, and download the application (both are free of charge). Head to Zoom’s website for more information:
