So delighted and excited that I received the arts council International Travel Award to undertake a large artistic research project with Prof Isabel Nogueira and Dr Rebecca Collins.

While there we will explore the subject Sounding the Feminist Body examine new approaches to exploring the history of women’s participation in the sound arts in Brazil, develop new practice based techniques, resulting in the development of a new body of work, and an innovative methodology for community outreach projects. The visit includes network meetings with curators, producers and activists in Salvador, Rio De Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Amazonia. Activity in Brazil is supported by a follow up meeting in the UK to present talks, performances and workshops.

So far our schedule is pretty busy, but looking forward to meeting up with many sound artists, composers, performance artists and community groups.
