Post Graduate Research event

At London College of Communication

Sound::Gender::Feminism::Activism was a postgraduate event that focused on the role of gender in sound-based arts and experimental musics, following on from the Her Noise: Feminisms and the Sonic symposium at Tate Modern in May 2012. The aim was to continue and expand upon dialogues and discourses related to feminism and sound, and to contribute to a growing network of researchers and practitioners working in these areas. The event brought together a range of academics, artists, musicians, engineers and music journalists invited to share their working interests and concerns. In addition, artists submitted audio and visual artworks for inclusion, which were available to view and listen to during the event.

Presenters: Amy Cunningham, Anat Ben-David, Annie Goh, Caro Churchill, Cathy Lane, Diana McCarty, Gayathri Khemadasa, Helena Lopes Braga, Holly Ingleton, Holly Pester, Irene Noy, Iris Garrelfs, Jane Dickson, Johnny Pavlatos, Kerstin Schroedinger, Laura Seddon, Magz Hall, Marie Thompson, Melanie Chilianis, Mikhail Karikis, Norah Lorway, Sharon Gal, Theresa Beyer, Theresa Schubert-Minsky and Val Phoenix.
