Fat Performance Network

Fat Performance Network


The Fat Performance Network is a way for people interested in making, thinking and talking about fat performance to combine forces. It was formed out of the Fat Performance DIY led by Gillie Kleiman as part of LADA’s 2020 DIY programme. 

We are still trying to figure out exactly what the Fat Performance Network is or could be. For now, we are working on a workbook of performance tasks following the 2020 DIY sessions, organising a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon to archive fat artists on the web, and meeting on Zoom on the last Friday of every month at 10am GMT to continue to discuss all things fat performance.


The best way to join us is to join our mailing list. 

We have been using Gaggle’s group email service to share updates with each other, including the links to our monthly meetings.

If you wish to come along to a meeting, or would like to stay updated on the Fat Performance DIY Workbook or the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon, click the button below to join us.

Host a Meeting

Our monthly sessions are run by members of the network. We would like you to be able to host a session on whatever you want to do with fat performance. As a guideline, we’re looking for each meeting to involve something to look at, something to do, and time to chat! 

If you’re interested in hosting a session you can sign up for a month that suits you on our Doodle poll and then email fatperformance+admins@gaggle.email with your plans so that we can send out an invite and materials to the rest of the group with two weeks notice.
