To celebrate International Women’s Day 2018, Women in Sound Women on Sound (WISWOS) and the Unit for Sound Practice Research (SPR) at Goldsmiths, University of London are launching Celebrating Women in Sound, a day of sound-related events featuring the work of female-identifying artists, to be presented at Goldsmiths on 8 March 2018.
The purpose of International Women’s Day is to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women; perhaps more importantly, the day is a call to action to change the shape of society and to push for gender parity in all areas.
WISWOS is dedicated to creating opportunities to showcase the impact of women in the field of music and the sound arts. This day of events aims to highlight the work of women in all sound related areas through a day of concerts, workshops, listening posts and talks, and the presentation of a new or previously unheard piece by a female identifying, femme or non-binary composer/sound artist.
The work selected will be showcased at the closing concert of Celebrating Women in Sound, on 8 March at 8PM in the Great Hall of Goldsmiths. The piece will also be performed at the Women, Sound and Music Symposium at the Institute of Arts, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil in September 2018. The selected artist and their work will be featured on the WISWOS website, with a page dedicated to their practice and work.
