PRIVATE KEEP OUT!
This post Brexit referendum artist retreat playfully looked at ways we might trouble boundaries and find ways to operate on more communal levels. Over the course of a weekend, PRIVATE KEEP OUT! participants were invited to explore the double-sided issues of privacy and trespass through a series of generative workshop activities and site responses.
Supported by Live Art Development Agency DIY 13 and also partner organisation Home Live Art. Developed from this workshop, and supported by a Jerwood Charitable Foundation grant, and Live Art Development Agency’s DIY Progression programme, Curious curated the Artist Borderpanic Compendium, a performative publication of theatrical and artistic scores that can be performed at a moment’s notice by artists and non-artists in need of creative succour and survival. Proceeds of purchase go to Help Refugees.
“Thank you both so much for a brilliant weekend. It’s such an urgent interrogation and it felt great to begin to edge towards it. I loved meeting everyone.”
“It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you over our weekend. And major thanks to you, Helen and Leslie, for facilitating and holding the space for us.”
“Thank you for running the workshop. I met – and got to work with some – some fantastic people and have seen some performances that will stick with me and provoke some thoughts and feelings for a while! It’s really propelled some writing and imaginings.”
