Cinema for the Qu(ears)
Open call for young lgbtqia+ creatives (musicians, writers, poets, artists...) to work with us to create a new immersive audio artwork.
Are you aged between 12 and 18 and living in a rural area in the North West? Are you interested in the arts? Perhaps you write songs, or poetry, or play a musical instrument. Perhaps you are a member of a drama group, or a creative writing group.
If you can imagine new things and want to express yourself, then this might be the project for you!
Between March and July 2023 we will get together regularly as a group to create the soundtrack for a new audio artwork to be presented as an immersive installation at the Alley Theatre in Strabane and Roe Valley Arts Centre in Limavady.
With help from workshop leaders, you will use sounds to build up an imaginary cinema soundtrack - Cinema for the qu(ears) - using recordings from daily life, songs you might compose during the project, interviews with friends and family, or imagined sound created in a studio. The content of the soundtrack can be anything you wish - the only limits are the limits of your imagination!
Workshops will be held in Limavady or Strabane depending on which is closest to where you live.
