This is the first volume in a series of annual publications planned by the Sounds Now network. With these publications, we would like to offer a space for different perspectives on the creation of long-term structural change through greater inclusion and diversity in contemporary music and sound art.

Each year, we invite one to three people, some working in music and some not, to reflect upon these issues. In Listening, we have chosen to focus our listening on a crucial consideration within present-day curatorial work: decolonising our practice and discourse.

We are honoured to hear the voices of Elaine Mitchener, Aretha Phiri and Raed Yassin in this first volume.
