UK and Ireland Soundscape Community Network Meeting

Saturday 1 February 10:00 until 17:00
Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts auditorium

What role can different forms of listening play in developing environmental understanding, empathy, communication, action and justice?

About this Event

Now, more than ever, we need to nurture environmentally concerned communities. We are therefore very pleased to invite you to join us for the 2020 UK & Ireland Soundscape Community (UKISC) network meeting.

Hosted at the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts at the University of Sussex, the day will include a mix of discussion and presentations but is primarily a chance to meet each other, exchange ideas and network across geographic and intellectual spaces.

To inspire conversation and exchange we invite proposals for short presentations - although it is by no means necessary, you are also welcome to come along and listen and engage in more direct conversations with each other.

As a community we are concerned with the creative and scientific study of the social, aesthetic, cultural, and ecological aspects of the sonic environment. In particular at this meeting we ask: What role can different forms of listening play in developing environmental understanding, empathy, communication, action and justice?

 

This event is part of the Festival of Music and Ideas: Hildegard Westerkamp and Acoustic Ecologies
