VIVA! Art Action is a biennial happening in which a multitude of live and undisciplined practices converge, including performance art, public intervention and relational artworks.
Every day at the headquarters:
◗ From 6:30pm (5:30pm on the 25th), a meal prepared by the VIVA! kitchen artist in residency ($7-10, vegetarian option available)
◗ From 8pm (2pm on the 28th), a program of performances, co-presented by the partner centers
Throughout the festival:
◗ Interventions in public space near the headquarters
◗ A unique account of the festival through an artistic infiltration of VIVA!’s social networks
◗ Conferences in academic settings open to the general public
◗ Workshops open to everyone and specialized workshops for artists
As well as:
◗ An area reserved for children, under their parent/guardian’s responsibility (some of the programming may not be suitable for children)
◗ A well-stocked bar and a legendary closing party!

* Viva! has a policy against harrassment. The festival collaborates this year with PLURI, an organization that aims to reduce harassment and improve inclusivity in nightlife. PLURI’s staff will be present to support the public in case someone’s behavior creates discomfort, or if a performance brings up difficult emotions. They will be identifiable by a yellow Party Support patch.
* Ateliers Jean Brillant are wheelchair accessible. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org with any question regarding accessibility.
* As always, to ensure that action art remains easily accessible to a wide audience, all of the events presented within the context of the festival are F-R-E-E!
