Now with NEW Blog! Documenting the exciting Live Art created by the LoT-D girls and more!
Live on the Drive (LoT-D) has been running since September 2016 and is a series of live art workshops, discussions and visits to live events. These workshops focus around discussions and creations of Live Art, and all this encompasses, including visual elements and using this to extend ideas of performance . The workshops have taken place in a range of contexts including the estate, public events such as the Women’s March, and even at Walthamstow School for Girls helping to introduce Year 10s to the project and Live Art. The LoT-D girls work collaboratively and individually to generate artwork in new and exciting ways. The LoT-D girls are at the centre of the project, including passing on their experiences and new found skills to other girls.
“I learnt to think about the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ and not just the ‘what’.”
“I loved it; it was a really different environment.”
“It was strange in a good way.” “I have an interest in performance art now and feel more confident about performing in front of other girls.”
