Expanded Listening

Expanded Listening is a long-term research project that, in this edition, explores the intersection of alternative radio stations and the performing arts.  

Stemming from the Listening Bodies project and led by sound artist Oscar Ngu Atanga (aka O.N.A), dramaturge Sarah Israel, and artist Sarah Zeryab, the project spans three events taking place at Cashmere Radio in Wedding (6 and 8 October) and Refuge Worldwide (7 October). 

Each of the three events, or 'Artistic Labs’, will deal in different ways with 'practices of listening', questioning the extent to which 'listening' – understood as a consciously exercised activity and an artistic practice – can be helpful in making present voices, themes and sounds that have hitherto been underrepresented in society.
