Sonic Intimacies:  Black Sounds - Gender & Intimacy

After an intensive weekend full of programs, performances, conversations, joys, giggles, dance and critical exchange, Sonic Intimacies Weekender concludes with an intimate gathering to listen, rest, unload, breathe and be present. 

The afternoon program centers notions of sound, gender, intimacy in relation to body politics and popular culture. Scholar Joy White will present a talk, which will be followed by talk by  Alexine Gabriela and concluding with a conversation with Amal Alhaag.

Afterwards there will be a workshop offered by MIMI. This sound healing workshop brings together sounds, gendered intimacy and the ways we are in relation with the world and each other. How can sound hold space for embodied ways of knowing the world otherwise.

Joy White is an independent researcher and the author of Urban Music and Entrepreneurship: Beats, Rhymes and Young People’s Enterprise, one of the first books to foreground the socio-economic significance of Grime music. She writes on a range of themes including social mobility, urban marginality, mental health/wellbeing, and urban music. Joy has lived in east London for forty years.
