SOUNDS OF OUR CITIES | OPEN CALL
Art Residency for 10 artists // Roeselare BE + Barcelona ES
Until 31-01-2020

Sounds of our Cities is an European project of Cultural Cooperation carried out between City of Roeselare, Dear Hunter, Aalborg Universitet 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 locative 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.

The Dutch collective Dear Hunter will be responsible for selecting spaces in each city (Roeselare and Barcelona) resulting from the mapping which they will elaborate during their residency, as a first phase of the project. The site-selection process aims to identify spaces, promoting various readings of, and new relationships with, the urban context. The process is about reimagining the sites, understanding them as spaces of possibility, from which participatory dialogues may be established by offering alternatives to the new spaces that forgetfulness has generated.

The artists’ sound interventions will allow us to imagine experiences retained by the architecture itself and not visible at first sight. These interventions will create an aural melody that will augment the city's landscapes through personal experience, and will be delivered in accessible sound format through digital applications on smartphones or other devices. By way of these interventions, the forgotten realities can now emerge through the project's sound stories as a new imagined city, or as a fictitious reality which is not so different from reality itself. An opportunity to imagine the utopian or dystopian from elements of memory. In this case, it is the sound from the oddity which compels us to generate a new image of a place which is so well-known and at the same time so hidden.

Participating artists must share methodology and sensitivity in relation to issues such as collective memory, the recovery of voices, and the urban imaginary. The process will connect past and present, and allow for the re-imagining of possible futures. 

WORK CONTEXT  

Krottegem is a popular neighbourhood in Roeselare, situated in the east side of the city next to the railway station. The City of Roeselare decided to develop a plan of action called “Krachtgebied Krottegem” (Impulse Krottegem).  Roeselare intends to approach the challenges in a positive way using the power of the neighbourhood, including inhabitants, local businesses and associations. For a few years local people have been taking initiatives to improve daily life in the neighbourhood. Initiatives were also taken to enhance the look and feel of the neighbourhood, organising cultural activities and community driven initiatives. From the City of Roeselare the idea of “The Sound of our Cities” as an art exhibition / festival fits into the Krottegem neighbourhood regeneration process. That this kind of activity can improve the image of the neighbourhood and the city in the wider region, and offers the possibility to attract new activities, investments and (creative) entrepreneurship.

Sant Andreu is a district in the northern part of Barcelona with an industrial tradition. The area's prosperity originally came from agriculture, owing to the water that irrigated the land along the banks of the Rec Comtal as it made its way from Montcada to Barcelona. In the 19th century, following the establishment of the textile industry, the centre of Sant Andreu was home to some of the most important factories of the day, including Fabra i Coats, La Maquinista, Fabricació Nacional de Colorants as well as a large number of smaller companies and workshops. In 1897, Sant Andreu was annexed by Barcelona along with other municipalities on the Barcelona plain, but to this day remains the former town with the strongest sense of identity. Sant Andreu nowadays is a modern and lively neighbourhood, with a growing population, new green spaces, a variety of community activities, preservation projects for its heritage, and a modern take, understanding this heritage through culture, innovation and the encouragement of diversity. Idensitat has begun the groundwork in researching the area and initiating contact with local actors.

The theme

“We are right now at the beginning of a climate and ecological crisis. Now is not the time for speaking politely. Now is the time to speak clearly. We need to call it what it is: an emergency.”
Greta Thunberg

On Friday 20 September young people around the world walked out of school to demand action on global warming and climate change. They say that the steps taken by governments and corporations aren’t enough - they’re just playing for time, delaying the inevitable. Drastic action is needed today to really make a difference.

Music is a powerful tool for raising awareness and motivating people into action. We will support you to think creatively about environmental issues, and inspire change through music. We want you to be playful and ambitious - this is your chance to create something for the future.

  • Record your music professionally at Box Yard Studios in Manchester
  • Showcase your work at our Sing City live night in March 2020

We will:

  • Connect you with a professional musician who will guide and support you throughout the creative process
  • Give you a budget of £200. This could be spent on: 
  • Field trips to spark creative ideas
  • Artist fees (e.g. if you would like to bring in other people to work with you such as a band, AV artist, dancer or filmmaker)
  • Equipment/instruments/materials needed to create and perform
