Join the discussion in creating alternative futures!
 

LIVE FUTURES will take shape at Liveworks as a series of free public conversations and special events that explore the role of art and artists in defining the new civic life we are entering in this year of disruption and change.

The LIVE FUTURES program celebrates the insight of artists, as thought leaders and critical players in the new social, cultural and economic paradigms that are being built or renewed, the protests, the social upheaval and transformation we are experiencing. These conversations will complement the voices of artists with those of academics, health professionals, and experts from other disciplines in order to dive deeply into the possibilities of our future world.

We also need your voices at our panels to help discuss what kind of world we are moving into, what kind of world we want to create, and how the role of art will help us get there. Join us!

Performance Space always aspires to champion marginalised voices, feminism, queer cultures and fluid and diverse approaches to sex and gender. This year, ideas of intimacy, sexuality, friendship, family and care have been radically disrupted.

How is our sense of responsibility to each other changing, and what will acts of care and intimacy look like in the future?
