Live Art Bistro (LAB)
Live Art Bistro is an artist led venue and curatorial team based in Leeds. Our common goal is to support the growth of Live Art practices in the region by providing space and opportunities to local artists, whilst also encouraging artists from further afield to present work in the city.
Live Art Bistro is voluntarily run and relies heavily on the support given by the local artistic community.
This project has been made possible with the support of Jerwood Charitable Foundation (JCF) and Arts Council England.
Jerwood Charitable Foundation (JCF) is dedicated to imaginative and responsible funding of the arts, with a particular focus on supporting emerging talent and excellence. They aim for their funding to allow artists and arts organisations to thrive; to continue to develop their skills, imagination and creativity with integrity. They proactively seek and initiate projects with outstanding organisations and individuals across the UK.
Arts Council England champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives.
They support a range of activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections.
Great art and culture inspires us, brings us together and teaches us about ourselves and the world around us. In short, it makes life better.
