SPARC Symposium 2019: Land Music

12 - 14 September 2019
City, University of London & IKLECTIK

 

Ecological thinking, beyond the conventional understanding of environment, asks us to consider new ways of imagining how we conceive of and consider the world. As Donna Haraway writes, “[…] another world is not only urgently needed, it is possible, but not if we are ensorcelled in despair, cynicism, or optimism, and the belief/disbelief discourse of progress.” The third SPARC Symposium will consider this shift in thinking through the lens of sound practice from a variety of perspectives from artists and theorists who consider how to respond to this moment of crisis.  

Keynote speaker: TBA

Invited participants include: Cathy Lane, Tanya Auclair, Joe Browning, Sylvia Lim, Lily Green, Clair Qualman, Gabriel Dattatreyan, Newton Armstrong, Amina Abbas-Nazari, David Toop, Cath Roberts, Matilde Meierless, Aaron Einbond, Clair Qualman, Jan Hendrickse, Nell Catchpole, Amber Priestley, Leo Chadburn
