As professionals working in outdoor arts and events, we have learnt to be flexible and inventive in how we make and present work. We have devised work practices that make our artists, crew and audiences safe in a range of situations outside the confines of traditional venues.
Moving Out provides a platform to bring together professionals from the outdoor arts and events sector to learn from each other as we develop strategies in response to COVID-19.

|Companies across the UK present live extracts of new work from their back yards, the sea or local parks. The inconvenience of a global pandemic has meant new work lovingly made by artists in 2020 has not been seen by anyone – until today.|
Neverthere is a mini festival of scratch performance featuring innovative new work harnessing digital technologies. It is a space for artists to share new work and an opportunity for audiences to see innovation during this extraordinary time.
