Sonic Futures: Performing Identity in the ‘Global’ City

The idea for this one-day conference, taking place on the 25th of April 2019, stems from a series of workshops, Sonic Futures: Identity and Sustainability through Music and Performance, supported by London College of Communication (Teaching and Learning Fund) in collaboration with May Project Gardens (Hip Hop Garden). Primarily, this project aimed to instigate critical thinking and reflections on cultural practices and genre through performance in general and Hip Hop music and culture in particular. Gardening is connected to questions of psycho-physical wellbeing, community building and sustainability in the global city. We welcome 15-minute presentations, academic papers, performances, and contributions from a wide variety of disciplines, practice areas and backgrounds.
