HouseFound Syposium

Event details

HouseFound Symposium is a new conference on disability arts and access produced in collaboration with Level’s Artistic Associate Katie Walters and Radical Body. Taking place on Wednesday 2 March 2022, the conference is aimed towards people working in the performance and visual arts sector who can embed change within their organisations.

HouseFound will take place on Wednesday 2 March between 1.30-7.30pm. The event will be in two parts; a series of four panel discussions during the day, and three performances in the evening. The goal of the symposium is to engage arts leaders on how best to work with creatives who struggle to leave their homes, and demonstrate the quality of art that people can produce when given the opportunity to perform or showcase work from home.

The evening will be a hybrid digital and livestreamed event. Selected artists will perform to a camera in their homes, with their performance footage streamed and projected into a physical space at LEVEL Centre for a small in-person audience. This is to act as a proof of concept for how to run an event for performers who struggle to leave the home that Symposium guests can experience together and use as a model for running their own events in the future.
