Since 2001, Paul Hurley has taught in education and art institutions across the UK and internationally, on the subject of live and performance art practice and theory. As well as a number of visiting and sessional appointments at Colleges and Universities, Paul has since 2009 been running the Live Art Crash Course. The Crash Course is an intensive and adaptable workshop covering different aspects of live and performance art. Workshops can run for as short as three hours or as long as a week, are tailored to suit participants – undergraduates, postgraduates, professional artists and general public – and typically involve a balance of presentation, discussion and practical exercises.
