Live Art in Scotland

Live Art in Scotland is an ongoing research project exploring the history of Live Art and experimental performance in Scotland, led by Dr Steve Greer at the University of Glasgow.  Through a combination of oral history interviews and archival research, the project 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.

This site holds a range of materials for researchers and live artists including Live Art Scotland: Research Resources, a guide to archives, collections and other materials that might support research into live art, performance art and interdisciplinary performance in Scotland, and a Practitioner Directory of residencies, funding opportunities and artist development schemes open to artists based in Scotland.
