    Live Art Sector Research - A Report Mapping the UK Live Art Sector is the first ever UK-wide research project into the Live Art sector, funded by Arts Council England and commissioned by the Live Art Development Agency in partnership with Live Art UK. It maps the Live Art sector, its impact and influence in order to identify the best way to support artists and organisations who work with a range of ambitious experimental, process-based, socially-engaged and participatory practices.

    This report is intended to be read by artists, organisations, funders, policymakers
    and researchers, in the Live Art sector and beyond, with an interest in the
    ongoing development of innovative artistic practices, and the celebration of
    everyone’s creativity and diversity – all key components of Arts Council England’s
    ‘Let’s Create, Our Strategy 2020–2030’.3 The report provides findings and
    opportunities for action that support and inform delivery of a range of UK arts
    and culture funding frameworks, including Arts Council England’s Let’s Create.4
    It addresses how sectoral support for Live Art practices in the UK contributes
    to strategic areas and priorities, including ambition and quality, inclusion and
    relevance, creativity, and new approaches to collaboration and participation.
