Since 2013, the ongoing series of practical immersive Summer Class workshops with residential character takes place in early summer on our campus C32, the space-project by Live Arts Cultures at Forte Marghera in Mestre-Venice. The Summer Classes present an enriching opportunity for international practitioners of all stages of experience to fully immerse themselves for ten days into the practice of performance art with experienced workshop facilitators and through in-depth methodologies.
Since 2012, we organize public roundtables, talks and presentations with international performance art practitioners, artists, scholars, curators and organizers.
Theoretical reflections during the ART WEEK 2014 and 2016 in collaboration with PAS | Performance Art Studies.

The Live Art Development Agency Study Room is a free and open-access research facility used by artists, students, curators, academics and other arts professionals. It is situation at LADA in Bethnal Green, London, and can be used to view artist's work, read publications, undertake research projects, find out general information about Live Art, opportunities and networks.
