SOUNDS OF OUR CITIES | OPEN CALLArt Residency for 10 artists // Roeselare BE + Barcelona ESUntil 31-01-2020

Sounds of our Cities is an European project of Cultural Cooperation carried out between City of Roeselare, Dear Hunter, Aalborg University and Idensitat. It aims to explore urban areas, focusing on the locality, including local audiences and reflecting on cultural identity in relationship with the community. This open call for artists to participate represents the project launch. 

SoOC offers a residency to 10 artists (5 in Roeselare and 5 in Barcelona) to develop a project within the social context of each city.The project will be carried out within 20 days’ residency, to take place during April and May in Roeselare and October and November 2020 in Barcelona. The central artistic activity of the project is the development of two sound art exhibitions, which will be embedded into specific sites in the urban environments.

The call for projects focuses upon the urban context and certain architectures which form part of its heritage, although these are perceived as silenced spaces (forgotten memories or places erased from the official narratives to be reactivated by a collective process). The idea is to respond with sound art proposals in several city spaces full of history, memory, and collective imaginaries, offering the viewer a fictional landscape in which to imagine different realities, while opening up a space for debate on current issues.
