This event is part of a series of online conversations, co-hosted by DRAF and Performance Exchange. The webcast talks feature artists, curators and other cultural practitioners engaged in live work.

As organisations both being dedicated to performance and event-based art practices, this collaboration is born from the need to keep supporting these practices, perhaps now more urgently than ever. In creating this platform together, we want to share artistic projects and ideas with our audiences, whilst thinking through different cultural infrastructure that works for performance in times of social isolation. We will be announcing these conversations via our digital channels so please do keep an eye on @draf_art or subscribe to our newsletter.

About Performance Exchange

Performance Exchange is a dispersed performance project across commercial galleries in London, some of which will also be hosting performances from international galleries in July 2020.

Highlighting the work done by commercial galleries to support multi-disciplinary and performance practice, Performance Exchange will create new forms of support for collecting performance art through a three day programme of presentations combined with detailed acquisition information for each work on an innovative digital platform.

Previous talks are published on our YouTube channel.
