Diverse Voices: Storytelling through Sound Art will support six established, BC media artists from diverse backgrounds to produce sound art pieces that share stories from their experiences and communities. The artists will produce sound art pieces that are 15 to 25 minutes in length and use storytelling as the main compositional direction. The project aims to increase opportunities for sound artists from marginalized communities, to amplify under-heard stories through the medium of sound art, and to encourage collaboration between artists from diverse backgrounds. We have identified that there is lack of representation specifically from Aboriginal, recent immigrant, and non-English speaking artists in the dominant sound art circles in the Lower Mainland. Our focus for artist selection and for the artist call will be to draw six artists from these communities.
