We launched a new microsite Boosting Resilience - Survival Skills for the New Normal, an intense, boundary-pushing and catalytic two year Executive Learning programme running from 2017 to 2019.
One of four flagsghip projects in Arts Council England's Building Resilience programme, it aims to enable senior staff from England-based arts and cultural organisations, music education hubs, museums and library services to develop new approaches to make the most of Creative Assets and Intellectual Property.
Boosting Resilience is being conceived and delivered by:
Sound Little Island, a collaboration with composer Jean Martin premiered in the ancient Tour de la Lanterne, La Rochelle, France as part of Festival Zero1.
This 12-channel installation transmitted live soundscapes from locations in England to the ancient Tour de la Lanterne in La Rochelle, France. These are sounds of everyday life in Brighton; a traditional English pub full of bluster, small talk and sporadic singalong; below a railway viaduct - cars are washed, seagulls cry, birds sing…
The soundscapes are complemented by interviews with French people who live, work, or study in England. They talk about their situation since the vote to leave the EU; their anxieties, nervousness, anger, plans and hopes.
Documentation of the work is scheduled for broadcast on Resonance FM, Resonance Extra and Framework Radio on the nights of the French Presedential Election 2017.
