DIY 7: Fierce and the Black Country

The Live Art Development Agency has released a ‘Call for Proposals’ for DIY 7.

“DIY is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual training and professional development projects for other artists.

We want to hear from you if have an idea for an exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic Live Art professional development project that offers something new and is geared to the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists whose practices are grounded in challenging and unconventional approaches, forms and concepts. If you think you can initiate and run a DIY professional development project then read the guidelines below.

DIY 7 builds on the strengths of previous DIY schemes which have proved to be invaluable experiences for project leaders, participants and organisers alike, and this year we are delighted to welcome even more partner organisations on board.”

Fierce are pleased to be a partner organisation on this year’s DIY 7 with a specific project opportunity: ‘The Black Country and its Living Museum’.

Fierce is fascinated by The Black Country Living Museum, and hopes to develop a relationship with the Museum over the coming years: ‘Experience life as it would have been years ago, as sights, sounds, tastes and smells bring your senses to life.’ . Fierce welcomes proposals that use the Black Country and/or its Living Museum as a frame or a jumping off point for a DIY project, which can take place in or in relation to the Black Country and/or the Museum; Fierce can assist with finding locations for the project, and with other logistics.

Six of the thirteen projects will be chosen based on specific project opportunities like ours for more information about DIY, Live Art Development Agency and how to submit a proposal visit

Deadline: Monday 17 May 2010
