About Live Collision
Live Collision is regarded as the leading curatorial model of Live Art in Ireland, both as an annual international festival and the first year-round independent Creative Producing organisation of its kind in Ireland; working with artists across disciplines with multiple partners to realise work of varying scale across sites, locations and contexts beyond the conventional model. Live Collision International Festival (presented annually in Dublin) only presents work by both national and international artists that has never before been presented in Ireland.
Live Collision creates extraordinary experiences for audiences and supports the most groundbreaking and challenging artists of our time; carving a space within our cultural landscape that previously did not exist. We support the most challenging artists & ideas of contemporary culture by foregrounding new Irish voices, inviting international practitioners of world repute and building frameworks for the development of artists and audiences with new platforms for collaboration and the presentation of live art practice.
Live Collision creates unprecedented partnerships across IRE, UK, US & EU to secure opportunities to present and develop new work – subsequently bringing extraordinary work to Irish audiences & directly impacting opportunities for practitioners based in Ireland. We work with artists & partners over long trajectories to create the optimum conditions to present live work. Our reputation & network extends across many partnerships and associations including – Live Art UK; Associate Organisation of Goldsmiths College London; EFA (European Festivals Association); EFFE label recipient for festivals ‘with exceptional rigour towards artistic commitment, community involvement and global outlook’.
