Show Notes

The art of storytelling, the art of stories, is the subject explored by this first session of "Assemblea delle Lucciole"/diARiA, from Palermo, Sicily. Storytelling is a popular art form which has been revitalized as a performance art and as a community form of sharing and building. With the words, sounds and stories of creative female artists and cultural producers from the Middle East, we explore artivism (arts and activism), particularly through the community storyteller Sally Shalabi in Jordan and so in the Middle East, drawing on a postcolonial and intersectional feminism perspective that puts light on the female creative agency.

Storytelling and sharing stories or "Cerchi di Parola" is also the practice of a community of women in a multicultural space "Casa di Ramia" in Verona, Italy. And we move also to the singer and songwriter Badiaa Bouhrizi in Tunisia who is the griot – the conteuse- with her Tunisian, Amazigh and African sounds.

Par où commencer ? - Série 4 - Créer. Donner accès. - A trans-making journey.

The objective of the trans-making project is to strengthen research capacity through the exchange of knowledge, expertise, skills and experience between academic and non-academic partners from Europe and third countries in the framework of a joint research programme. Based on certain components of the project - its transdisciplinarity, its geography, its methodology (participatory, field, artistic), its rhythm (research across different places or research in a single place) and its diversity of topics, 3 lines of conversation and an original sound piece are proposed exploring different situations of sharing skills and knowledge, inviting us to reflect on knowledge-making. A podcast by Ivor Davies and Fabienne Trotte. With the contribution and participation of Raúl Abeledo Sanchis, Oscar Blanco, Maïté Mazel, Charlotte Perrin, Gökhan Mura, Francisco Morillas and Haris Sahačić. trans-making project received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the grant Marie Skłodowska-Curie n°734855.   ...

Par où commencer ? - Série 2 - Se lier. S'organiser. - Mutual Effects

Mutual Effects is art as social research, a tapestry of sound drawing on interests in deep mapping and the Mass Observation movement to connect spaces of care, co-operation and conviviality in a northern British city during COVID-19. Through historical and contemporary prisms of grassroots food activism, a loose narrative moves between field recordings of a pedestrian pilgrimage to Edward Carpenter’s former Derbyshire farm commune, to the sound of 45kg of rescued peas being shelled in a communal kitchen, and through a range of conversations that lay out stark realities of austerity and hostility in the shadow of the monolithic post-European state. Woven through the recordings is music from the sonic commons of DIY music collectives from Sheffield (and beyond in some cases), all made and released during lockdown. The project is a collaboration between Out.Side.Film and Al McGregor, with support from Ivor Davies, and focuses on the work of Foodhall, Open Kitchen Social Club and National Food Service. ...
