Ray Young

Ray Young is an award-winning interdisciplinary performance artist and writer based between London and Nottingham.

Ray’s practice is socially engaged and exists on the boundaries between live art, dance, contemporary theatre. Through their work Ray creates space to explore and celebrate intersectional realities through alternative narratives and forms.

The Live Work Fund will give Ray a moment to reflect, experiment and excavate ideas within creative structures that feel safe, supported, inspiring and radical.

As well as developing new projects, Ray will use this time to research climate justice, advocate for better support for neurodivergent artists and audiences and experiment with virtual and augmented reality.
