DIY 14: 2017 - Network 11: Sounding In, Sounding Out 2.0

A workshop for artists working with sound and performance using the black diaspora as their centre of navigation


Project summary

‘Sounding In, Sounding Out 2.0’ is a one day workshop encompassing sound, video and performance led by Network 11, a peer group of artists. The session (in conjunction with invited participants), will form a combined sharing and examination of “the space we can’t see” as expressed by artist Lubaina Himid. Under these terms the complex material and scope of the sonic medium in regards to language and the historical conditions of blackness will be highlighted. 

At the core of this DIY will be the exploration of sound as an informatics within the African diaspora, a crucial component in uniting global and local experiences.
