For the Love Of It 2018
Our preeminent annual gathering of creative people who make live art outdoors.
Dates: 2nd-4th of March 2018 – Friday to Sunday
Venue: Walk the Plank Creation Hub, Cobden Works, Salford, Manchester, M6 6WF, UK.
Cobden Works is the brand new £1m+ home for Walk The Plank in Salford – a creative hub for outdoor arts.
This edition, called “Method”, promises to be ’48 hours of Inspiration, Creation and Fun’.
FLOI-18 will feature inspiring talks, workshops, skill-sharing, try-out works, games, play, cooking and eating together and great conversations, and a bar. FLOI is a great time to catch up with old friends and make new ones. As always at FLOI everyone has an opportunity to contribute to the community – give a talk, run a workshop, hold a topic of debate, run some games, cook, wash-up, show a work-in-progress, be the DJ for an hour, dance… whatever your heart desires: just come along and share 🙂
If you interested in participating in any way or located near-by and want to get involved please email FLOI at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is For the Love Of It?
Look at FLOI – 2017
Here’s the Report on FLOI-17
Part of the fun is that as most of the sessions are led by the participants, we almost can’t tell what sessions we can expect until they happen, its a leap in the dark…
What we do know is that the weekend will be a mixture of:
- Learning practical skills e.g. fooling techniques, chorus song, electricity outdoors, explosions
- Focused discussions e.g. critical writing, diversity and other conundrums
- Presentations from invited guests exploring their work and ideas about the world
- Showings of work in progress from ideas to performance
- Eating and chatting with other participants in an open and friendly atmosphere
‘Practice… makes practice’
– Making by all means.
– Sustaining the core of what you do.
– Practical, processing and putting it all in play.
– How things are usually done
– Centering your approach
– Rehearsals and Training

The FLOI 2016 -18 project receives support from Arts Council England so that we can keep costs to participants as a low as possible, making FLOI as accessible as we can.
