Scotland’s live art and new performance sector is coming together to talk about the future of artist support and development.

What does experimental and interdisciplinary practice need to thrive and flourish? How are different organisations approaching the work of supporting creative exploration and risk?

With contributions from Take Me Somewhere, The Work Room and the CCA, this forum will share information on residencies and development schemes on offer for artists working in Scotland. We’ll hear from artists on how different opportunities have supported them to develop their practice, and think - together - about what the future of artist residencies might look and feel like.

What would make a difference to the development of your own work? What are the conditions that allow creative experimentation, exploration and risk-taking?

Where are there gaps in what’s already on offer? How do residencies line up with other kinds of training, support or development? What new models can we imagine, together?

We're excited to welcome you to the space, refreshments provided. This event is supported by the University of Glasgow and the Arts and Humanities Research Council as part of the Live Art in Scotland project which aims to contribute a missing chapter of Scotland’s cultural history while exploring the forms of curation, support and development that might foster experimental practices in the future.
