WHAT IS LONDON ARTS LIVE?
London Arts Live is a pop-up art program that places some of London’s best professional artists in urban spaces across the city. Supported by our Community Arts Investment Program, the program increases professional opportunities for artists, invigorates urban spaces, and promotes London’s unique cultural economy.
PARTNERSHIPS & COLLABORATIONS
Live performances by professional local artists can animate events & engage the public, turning your space into a story.
London Arts Live has partnered with over 40 charitable organizations, businesses, and events. If you are interested in collaborating, please send an email to Jeremy Jeresky (Curator, Public Programs and Learning) at
HOW CAN ARTISTS JOIN THE ROSTER?
London Arts Live showcases London’s artistic talent across all performative disciplines—dance, multimedia, music, theatre, visual arts, and more. There is no deadline to apply: we are always accepting applications to join our roster.
Artists performing as part of London Arts Live earn $50/hour (with multi-artist acts earning $50/hour per person) and can also collect tips during their performances.
Step 1: Online application process
You must be a resident of London, 18 years of age or older, and a professional artist (meaning you have developed skills through training or practice and continue to actively practice, you are recognized by artists working in the same artistic tradition, you have a history of public presentation, and you seek payment for your work).
Step 2: Jury process
Artist applications are reviewed by a jury, composed of senior arts professionals, that will select those artists who are best for our roster. At this stage, you may be asked to perform at one of our periodic, public auditions at Innovation Works (201 King Street).
Welcome to the London Arts Live roster!
If your application is successful, you'll join our growing roster of artists.
During our summer season, we will ask you to provide your monthly availability for regular and frequent gigs.
During our quieter winter season, we will contact you directly with specific gig offers.
