Description

The MIT Community Innovators Lab (CoLab), LA Listens, and the Design Studio for Social Intervention are hosting a conference, Listening to the City: Engagement, Exploration + Intervention through Sound, May 25 & 26th, 2017. This 2-day convening is intended for activists, artists, residents, researchers, students, teachers, and community practitioners with an interest in sound as a creative mode of inquiry, a tool for democratic engagement, and a means for social change.

The conference program will offer a mix of hands-on workshops, performances, presentations, panel discussions, installations, field trips, listening parties, and other types of sessions that demonstrate how sound can can better prepare us to understand, empathize, and engage with the complexities of our urban environments.

Supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the conference will begin at MIT on Thursday morning, and will then invite participants to journey to several other locations throughout Greater Boston and Cambridge over the course of the two days.

The conference is free but space is limited and registration by May 20th is required. Sign up to reserve your spot today!
