For the Love Of It 14

FLOI-14 Stoke-on-Trent

2 days of inspiration, creation and fun, a chance for a wide range of Street Arts professionals to gather - for 2014 this was in Stoke-on-Trent.

Theme: 'Our Public Realm?'

  • The democracy of art on the streets
  • How do we make the most of this most public and accessible of all live performing arts?
  • With public spaces increasingly being leased to and managed by private and commerial operators, what rights artists have?

Congregate Speculate Invigorate
A cross between a weekend long party and sessions with skill sharing and inspirational ideas - artists led and working for a broad mixture of people attending.

Low cost to cover all main meals. Many find it a fun, affirming and stimulating time in the company of some other great street artists / producers / programmers / funders.

Our partner this year is Appetite who bring ‘tasty’ arts experiences to people from Stoke-on-Trent through a wide range of events in public spaces both indoors and outside. Come and find out more……
