Conversation #3: Sound As Monument
Every street, every city has an aural character and ephemeral texture. It is a document of the place, and the people who inhabit it, and the lives they lead. Each of the panelists, Arielle Julia Brown, La’Vender Freddy, and Natalie Hopkinson, grapples with the sonic textures of the places they work in. Together they will delve into how sound functions as a monument to memory, whether it can heal and restore. The panel will interrogate whether advancing/acknowledging the culture of their sounds can be a functional framework for developing new futures for a community. Moderated by Arlette- Louise Ndakoze.
