Sounding Borders

Sounding Borders’ is a research and practice-led project that questions how borders are shaped, controlled and embodied through sound. The public facing events will take place in Lincoln and include a listening workshop with a sound artist and researcher Pedro Oliveira, an interactive soundwalk, a critical excursion, a writing workshop and an exhibition. Audiences will listen to local-global borders to explore how everyday public and private spaces are policed and bordered sonically. The events will aim to reflect critically on their migration experiences and the materiality of borders. The project, working at the intersections of sound studies, creative practice and decolonial geopolitical debates, will interactively engage audiences in questions of sound, community and globality.
