New Moves International (NMI)’s Winter School was an annual programme of artist-led courses offering training and development for independent artists and students in tertiary education. Staged in Glasgow, UK, between 2003 and 2011, it emerged from NMI’s commitment under the artistic directorship of Nikki Millican to fostering opportunities that might allow emergent and established practitioners to step outside their familiar creative process and critically assess their work. This essay offers a history of the Winter Schools and their significance to the development of Live Art in the UK during the 1990s and first decade of the new millennium. In doing so, it argues that the Winter School’s emphasis on process-based pedagogies allows for further understanding of Live Art’s resistant relationship to conventional forms of performer training, especially those characterised by ‘masterclass’ teaching.
