What Does Freedom Sound Like?

6–9 May 2021, Symposium Part II


Continuing and building on from September 2020, the second part of the Curating Diversity symposium invites participants to embark on a collective reflection process in giving space to sounds of freedom that are continuously being co-created - beyond Eurocentric power structures and thought patterns.

The participatory Open Space format supports a more practice-oriented approach, focusing on a peer-led exchange of knowledge via collective listening sessions and workshops.

The symposium brings together diverse actors to explore the development of multiple non-colonial music and sound practices. The aim is to form new alliances and derive measures for action together, keeping in mind how these can be implemented sustainably.

The symposium was developed in collaboration with an Advisory Board consisting of: Memory Biwa, Du Yun, Candice Hopkins, Lee Walters and meLê yamomo.
