You & Your Work (Y&YW) is back, this time in partnership with and taking place at Arnolfini, The Wellspring Healthy Living Centre and The Walled Garden Project in Barton Hill. Y&YW’s ninth festival ‘Here and There’, will showcase risk-taking outcomes from 3 new ambitious commissioned projects, including Dane Watkin’s ‘Iconkit’, a new online performative and interactive survey; Sue Palmer, Joff Winterhart and Simon Robert’s ‘100 Year Old Band’ made up of participants aged 0–100 and food-based performance work ‘Our Daily Bread’ by Lucy Cassidy. Y&YW are also very pleased to be hosting Australian artists Malcolm Whittaker and Georgie Meagher, with their participatory mapping performance ‘Kansas’,  as well as presenting exciting live works from UK-based artists.

Y&YW will also present an open panel discussion on participatory performance practices, with guest speakers Joshua Sofaer (Artist), Theron Schmidt (King’s College London), Ilana Mitchell (Creative Director, Wunderbar Festival) and Y&YW commissioned artist Sue Palmer with project participants.
