An evening to discuss Live Art, kids, young people, non-binary identities and non-conformist families.

About

Please note: Early start of 6.30pm because it’s a school night!

Bristol based Liz Clarke and her son Felix’s show, I’m Bitter About Glitter, explores questions of gender fluidity, identity and sexuality from an 9-year old's perspective, and asks what it means to be part of an art-making, non-conformist family.

Liz and Felix’s work relates to some of the questions LADA’s Thinker in Residence Hester Chillingworth is researching into opening up Live Art to young people, particularly gender-questioning and gender-variant young people, and the ways that Live Art can navigate and investigate the trans experience.

Please join us for an evening with Liz, Felix, Hester, Colchester Arts Centre’s Anthony Roberts, artist Abi Roberts and their son, the performance artist Reggie Roberts (age 10), to discuss some of the issues raised by I’m Bitter About Glitter and wider questions about the role of Live Art in creating new spaces, contexts and processes to engage with kids, young people, non-binary identities and non-conformist families.

There’ll be snacks, drinks, conversations and a turn or two.
