About Katie Etheridge

Katie Etheridge

I am an artist and performance maker. My work investigates the interrelationships between people and places. I often place the audience member at the centre of the experience, shifting them from passive spectator to active participant.

I make collaborative projects with Simon Persighetti as Small Acts. Operating at the intersection between architecture, community, landscape, and performance, our collaborative practice invites audiences to investigate their own relationships with the places in which they live, work and play.

I am the director of Faceback, the live art game that has gone viral at Festivals and events across the UK, connecting 1000’s of people who wouldn’t normally meet, with the support of the School for Social Entrepreneurs.

“Katie Etheridge is a fascinating artist and performer. She has a rare ability to engage intimately with the contexts of her work and then produce responses of subtlety and complexity.”
