Presented by Word of Warning

What can you make when your kitchen table is the stage + your camera is the audience? An assembly of artists; a collage of commentary on where we find ourselves now…


Domestic is an informal online platform for artists to beta test new work, live from their homes — get a feel for it by watching previous events on YouTube.

Although we sense that artist’s appetite for showing their work online from home is currently waning, our rolling call for proposals remains open — please feel free to suggest something as we’ll put together our sixth online event when we’ve got the right content, potentially later in 2021.


When: hopefully taking place later in 2021, date + time to be confirmed.
Location: livestreamed online via Zoom webinar.
Ticketing: book a free space on eventbrite to receive livestream details.
Donations are welcome via PayPal.
Age Advisory: 18+ (mainly aimed at adults; parental/guardian discretion).
Content Warnings: some works may disturb, for specific warnings please click here.
Please note: if you require live captioning we suggest you try using Otter on a second device (download on the App Store or get it on Google Play);
  to improve your listening experience we suggest using headphones/external speakers;
  for specific access queries please get in touch by emailing


In 2013/15/17 we presented Domestic works in tower blocks in transition — little did we know then, that in 2020 our homes would become our only stages and only auditoria…

And so in 2020 we began a series of “Domestic at homes” that continued in January & March, with artists trying out new works about what was on their minds — using whatever resources they had to hand.

Join us later in 2021 for our sixth set of “artists at home” — selected from our rolling open call for proposals. Real lives, real stories, real homes.

Domestic online series is hosted by Peader Kirk + produced by hÅb.
