It’s Time: how Live Art is taking on the world from the front line to the bottom line

A collection of case studies from Live Art UK

It’s Time responds to the recent successes of Live Art and highlights those artists, projects and initiatives which are re-politicising and re-energising our arts spaces, sharing radical works and ideas with a public who are themselves being forced to do more with less. Below are three extracts from the publication, Cecilia Wee's introduction and case studies by Karl Taylor, Mel Evans and Hayley Newman.
