SHPLive.TV develops and delivers live streamed performance projects across South East England, based in South Hill Park Arts Centre, Berkshire. The programme is supported by National Lottery funds through Arts Council England.
SHPLive was launched by South Hill Park during the early summer of 2012 and is funded to run until April 2015.
Inspired by early experiences of podcast and community broadcast initiatives within the venue’s own Digital Media Centre, the SHPLive programme seeks to expand the reach of performance and to stimulate research and development of new projects that make use of the internet as an interactive performance platform.
SHPlive.TV travels with it’s equipment and experienced production crew to other venues around the South East providing live streaming services for events, performances and concerts.
As well as delivering inhouse productions at South Hill Park, the three year programme has created projects such as:
- Creation of a network of screening partners in children’s hospices, hospital wards and SEN schools
- live streaming a series of commissioned improvised music concerts
- supporting artists to develop new performance work for streaming
- devising and hosting masterclasses and conferences
- External live stream production for Aldeburgh Music, Audiograft Festival, The Dance Movement, New Vic Productions, Windswept Productions a.o.
Based in the beautiful Georgian mansion that is home to South Hill Park Arts Centre
South Hill Park mansion is a Grade II listed building of special architectural interest in Bracknell, Berkshire. It is surrounded by landscaped gardens and parkland with two lakes and areas of woodland.
Over the years a successive number of owners, including nobility, a prime minister, the BBC and now an arts centre, have all made their mark on the building.
