Delighted to take part in an absolutely wonderful event highlighting issues and opportunities with equality in the world of all things sonic.
on 05.06.17, I contributed with a workshop called "Where does a body end?" - a practical guide to curbing some of the potential issues and possibilities with technology enhances learning in relation to gender equality. In short, we looked at free technology (web-based) and how to unleash, tame and get the best out of collective and individual creativity with all the tools in form of at-hand recording devices, people have today.
We discussed pedagogical perspectives and challenges, in light of one of the hot topics on the seminar:
How do we get young women involved AND get them to stay in sound and music. And how can we use this questioning to tackle even more issues in terms of equal access to the creative industries which, today, normally require being highly literate in various technologies, to "gain access- and acceptance- to the control room".
