Which, we guess, is the answer to the question “Why do we do this?”
FLOI was started by Pete Gunson (PifPaf) and Chris Squire (Impossible Arts) and after their first two events they worked with NASA to develop the event… idea… concept.
FLOI is a gathering of Artists and/or Companies and Producers, Bookers, Makers… anyone in the outdoor and street arts sector or anyone in any sector really (FLOI is open to everyone)
The meetings are informal and fun, relaxed and creative.
Everyone who comes along is invited to give a talk, make a presentation, help with the cooking, present a show or work-in-progress and we spend two or three days together.
We have been hosted by The Lanternhouse in Cumbria, The College Project in Bristol, by Appetite in Stoke, 101 Arts Creation Space nr. Newbury and The Watershed in Huddersfield in 2016.
