On 11-12 November 2016, Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP) is holding its two-day Sound::Gender::Feminism::Activism conference, this year exploring White Noise.
Professor Cathy Lane is CRiSAP Co-Director and a member of the Sound::Gender::Feminism::Activism 2016 programme committee, and she spoke to us on behalf of SGFA 2016 about what a newcomer can expect from the SGFA experience.
How would you describe the Sound::Gender::Feminism::Activism conference to a first–time attendee? What can they expect from an SGFA event?
SGFA is not a typical academic conference – far from it – instead SGFA events consist of a lively mixture of performance, sound works and film with some more formal research presentations. They are generally sociable, informal and not at all intimidating.
