Promoting inclusion through curating

Sounds Now aims to actively stimulate inclusion by focusing on the curator’s social and artistic role in in contemporary classical music and sound art. Centering on three pillars of diversity —  gender/gender identity, ethnic and socio-economic background — the project includes a range of actions such as labs for curators, mentorship programs, artistic productions, symposia and research. Through these actions, Sounds Now seeks to open up the possibility for different experiences, conditions and perspectives to be defining forces in shaping the sonic art that reaches audiences today.
