Restock, Rethink, Reflect Four
Restock, Rethink, Reflect Four on Live Art and Privilege (2016 -18) was developed in collaboration with Dr Amit Rai of Queen Mary, University of London, and aimed to mark and map the ways in which Live Art has developed new forms of access to, and understandings of, knowledge, agency, and inclusion in relation to the under-represented, marginalized and disenfranchised constituencies of the young, the old, the displaced, and those experiencing the relations of class and privilege.
The first year of Restock, Rethink, Reflect Four was research based: mapping the territories, unpicking the most critical questions, and developing new partnerships, resources, strategies and approaches.
This research primarily took the form of four artist-led residencies in LADA’s Study Room by the artists Sibylle Peters, Lois Weaver, Elena Marchevska and Kelly Green.
The residencies with Sibylle Peters and Lois Weaver were undertaken by invitation. Kelly Green and Elena Marchevska were invited to undertake residencies following an open call for proposals.
Each residency generated a Study Room Guide, a range of new Study Room resources, and a Toolkit of Methodologies:
Live Art & Kids – A Study Room Guide by Sibylle Peters looking at key issues and works in relation to Live Art by, for, and with, children.
Performing Research – A Toolkit of Methodologies by Sibylle Peters on how to conduct research projects with kids and adults using Live Art strategies.
Know How – A Study Room Guide by Lois Weaver looking at key issues and works in relation to working with older constituencies

The Displaced & Privilege (Live Art in the age of hostility) – A Study Room Guide by Elena Marchevska looking at key issues and works in relation to displacement and working with the displaced.
