Action Space Annual Report Extract

‘[Action Space] its validity and continuity through the manner of its response to the existing situations found in the community, in art schools, the art world and its relationship with the wider public. Its workings are necessarily experimental, devious, ambiguous, and always changing in order to find a new situation.  In the short term the objectives are to continually question and demonstrate through the actions of all kinds new relationships between artists and public, teachers and taught, drop-outs and society, performers and audiences, and to question current attitudes of the possibility of creativity for everyone. For the longer term the aim is to place the artists in a non-elite set up, to keep ‘normal’ under revision, to break barriers in communication and to recognise that education is a continuing process.’
