fee EUR 846

The Sounding City Summer School is offered in partnership with Struer Sound Art Lab, Struer Museum, Struer City of Sound (Struer Municipality), and Uddannelsesinitiativet Struer.

All partner-organisations are part of the Struer municipal strategies for enhancing sonic environments and sound art as part of city planning and urban placemaking, and partner-organisations are supported by municipal and cultural institutions in Struer (including the local art council, specialized in sound art) and by Sound Hub DK and Bang & Olufsen.

The summer school will cover aspects of sound studies and urban studies and how these fields connect and engage citizens, also with more-than-human actors in the urban environment. The summer school will additionally introduce to participatory audience engagement and how public space can be a space for democratizing processes.

The focus of the summer school will be on how residents in urban quarters and urban wilding environments may interact with and through soundscapes and sonic interventions, and how the summer school participants may bring the understanding of these audiences / users / residents into the conceptualizing, development and production of digital and analogue sound pieces and stories for urban placemaking and everyday urban life.
