The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home has originally been set up in 2007 to coincide with the Liverpool 08 European Capital of Culture, or what we have come to call Culture of Capitalism, C®apital of Culture or even Capital(ism) for Vultures. The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home is a space for dissenting the Capitalism of Culture. Please note that the Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home is NOT and has never been affiliated to Liverpool08.

The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home hosted a number of events, residencies and conversations throughout 2008 2009 2010 2011 and 2012 and continues its work throughout 2013. The Institute is interested to discuss homemade aesthetics, the private/the public, the familial, class and money matters.
The Institute is open to visits, proposals for projects, performances, discussions, screenings, residencies, exhibitions, actions and presentations. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Institute’s running budget for this year is 10% of twoaddthree’s combined annual net income (i.e. two lectureship salaries, some freelance work, tax credits and child benefit) which makes it £5, 100 – this is a significant increase from the year 2008 when the Institute annual budget was £2, 857.10. Adults in the Institute now work full time as lecturers – they used to be on 0.5.
We anticipate that this budget (£425 a month) will provide a nominal fee for invited artists, cultural activists and speakers to cover their expenses. The Institute is committed to financial transparency and all events are free for audiences.
