Space for Live Art
– in Europe

New Moves International, the team behind the New Territories festival of live art in Glasgow, is taking part in a new European project called A Space for Live Art which will bring collaboration and showcasing opportunities for the eight organisations involved.

Following a successful pilot project with partners Les Halles in Brussels and Les Subsistances in Lyon in 2006, A Space for Live Art now has five additional partners from across Europe and has attracted over €4 million in funding from the European Union for a five year project.

The organisations involved are diverse, ranging from festival producers such as New Moves International and the Accion Madrid in Spain, to large scale venues such as Les Subsistances in Lyon. Each organisation will draw on their specialism and expertise to contribute to the project.

New Moves - supported by Scottish Arts Council Flexible Funding - runs the New Territories Festival in Glasgow each February, which includes the National Review of Live Art. The new funding will allow New Moves to programme more European work, provide a specific platform for new artists, and take Scottish work to events across Europe.

Les Halles in Brussels is leading the project, and will maintain a bilingual website which will be launched in September to coincide with the first major event, the Anti Festival in Finland. The project will run for five years and will include a staggering 605 performances and 76 new commissions, along with talks, workshops, residencies and co-productions.
