FLOI-17

FLOI-17

Annual gathering of Outdoor and Street Arts professionals : a weekend of inspiration, creation and fun, a chance to recharge an re-connect. At 101 Creation Space, Greenham Common, Newbury, Berkshire, RG19 6HN.

Book on to FLOI-17 here: http://nasauk.org/projects/floi/for-the-love-of-it-2017/

Part of the fun of FLOI is that as most of the sessions are led by the participants, we almost cant tell what sessions we can expect until they happen, its a leap in the dark ...

Overall the weekend is a mixture of:

  • Learning practical skills  (e.g. fooling techniques, chorus song, electricity outdoors, fire torches, making monoprints...)
  • Focussed discussions  (e.g. new circus, indoor-outdoor crossover, conundrums...)
  • Fascinating presentations exploring working techniques (e.g. evolution of ideas, community commissioning, physical performance...)
  • New work (e.g. hot seating ideas, feedback on a piece, try-out performance...).
  • Eating and chatting with other participants - in an open and friendly atmosphere

We ask that everybody does something, could be washing up, could be offering a 3 minute moment at our mini-cabaret evening, could be suggesting a theme to discus or sharing a technique with a small group...or any/all of the above!

What is FLOI?

A pre-season wake up learning and networking opportunity involving workshops, talks and performances offering genuine sharing and collaboration in an informal environment.
