Episode 2 – Live Art in Yorkshire
August 2017 (17.28)

Episode two of the Live Art UK podcast is about Yorkshire: in particular the different working environments for artists and organisations in cities like Sheffield and Leeds, and smaller towns like Scarborough.

In it, we talk to Terry O’Connor from Forced Entertainment, who reflects on changes in Sheffield since they arrived there in 1984; Jess Sweet and Adam Young of Live Art Bistro, on creating a home for the Live Art community in Leeds; Annie Lloyd and Peter Reed from Compass Live Art, on the way their organisation grows and contracts between biennial festivals; and Jade Montserrat, an artist living and working in Scarborough, on how her town could take better advantage of its empty shops and venues.
