Live & Local: LivingRoom

 

A series of micro-commissions for artists to engage with communities throughout the East and West Midlands.

Background:
Live & Local artists are welcomed into village halls - the ‘living room’ of a rural community - to perform for and to be treated as a member of that community while they are visiting. Live & Local: LivingRoom takes this concept as its starting point and we are inviting artists to submit proposals to remotely engage with communities in their actual living rooms.
