SOUND::GENDER::FEMINISM::ACTIVISM (SGFATokyo) will investigate the relationships between sound in all its various creative and theoretical forms, gender and activism. This fourth instalment will take place at Tokyo University of the Arts, Japan.
SGFA was originally initiated in 2012 by researchers and artists based at the Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP). The events form part of ongoing collaborative research into historic and contemporary feminist discourses in sound and experimental music. This research aims to expand and to question the place and performance of activism within the discourses and practices of sound arts, sound-based arts and experimental musics that are engaged with gender, feminist and queer politics and to contribute to a growing network of researchers and practitioners working in these areas. Different incarnations of SGFA took place in London in 2012, 2014 and 2016 attracting a diverse range of international presenters and attendees.
Tickets are free, but space is limited. Please follow this link to book via Eventbrite
Tickets for the performances are free, but will only be available on the door of Untitled on a first-come-first-served basis
