The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home has moved from Everton to Anfield, from social housing to private ownership.

The Institute for the Art and Practice of Dissent at Home is now (from 2014) run from a four bedroom town house on a new estate in Anfield after having been run out of a housing association property in Everton, Liverpool (2008-2013).

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 2012 and 2013 and continues its work throughout 2014. 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 theinstitute@twoaddthree.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 currently stands at makes it approximately £3,670 – this is an increase from the year 2008 when the Institute annual budget was £2, 857.10, but decrease from 2013 when its budget was £5100.  Adults in the Institute now work full time as lecturers – they used to be on 0.5 – but in 2014 the mother is on maternity leave.

We anticipate that this budget (£306 a month in 2014) 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.
