This year, MwB is embarking on a multi-year research partnership with Queen’s University Belfast: Sounding Conflict: From Resistance to Reconciliation. The study seeks to analyze the ways in which sound (including sonic arts and participatory music-making) can project and ameliorate community experiences, memories and narratives in conflict/post-conflict contexts from resistance through to reconciliation. Our projects in Palestine and Northern Ireland will be involved in the study, culminating in a Sound Art Installation that will be showcased at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin, our project partner in Derry-Londonderry, as well as in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
We look forward to hosting researchers from Queen’s University in the coming months as part of our Music Bridge training program in Northern Ireland.
