LIVE Biennale of Performance Art

LIVE, The LIVE International Performance Art Biennale is a showcase and forum of contemporary performance art. Our mission is to encourage ideas around live art through a creative, critically engaged program of activities. We strive to be an internationally focused inclusive site of cultural exchange and collaboration that promote art and ideas to simultaneously engage the public’s imagination and activate their roles within the social body. We are dedicated to servicing multi-cultural engagement by offering new professional opportunities to exceptional artists locally and worldwide, and providing a forum for emerging artists. LIVE enjoys an historic and ongoing relationship with the Downtown East Side and Chinatown community and consciously supports the local art centres and businesses. LIVE is a celebration of cultural diversity and personal identity inclusive of and sensitive to First Nations, visible minorities, sexual orientations, genders, and people of different ages and histories.
