a centre for boundary testing live artworks that provoke, experiment, and promote social change.
We strive to create a community driven space where audiences, participants and artists are able to express themselves and see themselves reflected in the work we do. We aim to improve access to interdisciplinary, contemporary live artworks and experiences, and believe Live Art practise has the potential to instigate social change.
We enable the public to experience artistic events of a type that they would be unlikely to encounter elsewhere, through the presentation of works by artists whose practice is hard to define and by supporting risk and experimentation. We are a touring venue and a space to make art and performance and as well as home for our Studio Community.

Live Art In Isolation
CHASM is a series of live artworks and performances searching for intimacy in a time of social isolation that premiered online in October and November 2020.
Curated by Jessica Sweet, Artistic Director of CLAY, it included works by Amy Lawrence, Ellie Harrison, Jo Hauge, Mystical Femmes and Nando Messias. The works were co-commissioned with East Street Arts, selected by open call and assessed by a panel of four artists and programmers.
This text by Samra Mayanja explores the curatorial thinking behind the programme and descriptions of commissioned works - read it here
