Live Archive: Ambient Jam Collective


Ambient Jam Collective invites you to an immersive, inclusive, sensory ‘happening’ evolving from 32 years of history, as part of Artist Archive.

Entelechy Arts’ Ambient Jam Collective is a vibrant ensemble of differently-abled artists who bring multi-sensory improvisation out of hiding into engagement with the public. Improvisations are sensitive to site and locality, multi-textural, mindful, profound, playful, often wondrously messy, open to the unexpected and non-verbally led.

The collective has grown from a 32-year collaboration of weekly improvisation between people with profound, complex and learning disabilities (PMLD) and dance/music/sculpture artists.

Through a durational multi-sensory improvisation, we will share an embodied heritage, an archive held in the long-term relationships, trust and care between people – a community forged through the repetition of weekly improvisations over time.

Find out more about this event on our website.


This event takes place throughout the studios, with the jam in the Roof Studio.

Ambient Jam events are open and accessible to people of any age from 0 to 100, to people with disabilities and wheelchair users. They are ‘durational happenings’, which means that you can stay as long as you like and leave when you like. At this event the jam will last for an hour and a half.

Entelechy Arts have put together a what to expect guide and a list of ways in which you might want join in - but the most important thing is that you have fun!
