The ACTS programme was established in 2020 to explore how artists might conceive of staging speculative events online.

ACTS 2023

 John Hughes & The Very Loud Reading Group 

‘We got it on > January 23. Took up a semi-circle once a month, bookmarked with a black suitcase and a bad back. A broken zip. Our stage? The top floor of a tower block classroom. Heating: turned ON. In February we take over the grey carpet spiral of a university lecture theatre. Just for one day. April slides up to March and we find ourselves locked inside the back room of a converted pub. Together. Smelling of paint, not beer. Mixing. Working our way through a hard to find, obscure, 1971 music education text.’


 JJJJJerome Ellis: Trembling (extract) 

In this talk, composer and poet JJJJJerome Ellis discusses his ongoing research into the intersections of Blackness, music, and stuttering.
