The event theme and title is S.E.E [Sound, Education, Experience] and will focus on the visibility of women in sound practice and music technology.
Women In Sound / Women On Sound was established at Lancaster University in 2015 by sound artist and academic Linda O’Keeffe to explore women’s participation in sound practice and music technology. Building on these foundations, here at Goldsmiths we are holding the first Women In Sound / Women On Sound event in London, where we will present a varied programme from and for practitioners, students, and academics in sound and music.
Our event theme and title is S.E.E [Sound, Education, Experience] and will focus on the visibility of women in sound practice and music technology. Identifying major challenges and trends for women in the field and how we can best support each other; we will also celebrate and strengthen the existing, fruitful and diverse network of women across London, working with or in sound.
