Professional development projects BY artists FOR artists

The DIY 13: 2016 call for proposals is now open.
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.
We want to hear from you if have an idea for an exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic Live Art professional development project.

Past DIY projects have taken many forms including a week long retreat in a secret and unknown rural destination, a temporary biker gang in Cambridge, eavesdropping in Bournemouth, a workshop for assholes in Glasgow, a superhero weekender in Colchester, an Elvis Presley pilgrimage in Porthcawl and a lapdancing weekend in Birmingham. 

Between them they have covered diverse subjects of investigation including chance, plagiarism, archives, the weather, participation, ageing, documentation, sex and children, wage, masculinity, regrets, personal hauntings, gypsy culture and much much more.
