Event information

By the MAP/making Project

Guildhall, Royal College of Art, London Contemporary Dance School


MAP/making (Music, Art and Performance) is an educational platform for interdisciplinary collaboration established in 2000.  Working collectively on large and small-scale performance installations, MAP/making offers an experimental, progressive environment combining new creative processes, open dialogue and critical thinking in community.  Working freely across electro-acoustic, instrumental music, sound art, installation design, videoart, sculpture and performance practice, MAP/making has developed a unique shared methodology and collaborative ethos that enables artists to address contemporary subject matter in a powerful and immediate way.

Since 2000 MAP/making has produced several high profile site specific performance installations. Combining intense live performance with experimental design, inhabiting found spaces and repurposing everyday materials, audiences are drawn into the immersive world of the installation, navigating through spaces as different pieces are activated or performed.

Since the project began several hundred students from our partner institutions have been involved, as well as participants from other conservatoires, colleges, community groups and professional orchestras from the UK and overseas. An important outcome of this project is the opening of new professional pathways into the creative industries for its participants which has led to the creation of a number of pioneering companies with artists gaining considerable success nationally and internationally.
