The unfolding global pandemic has triggered an existential reckoning over our conceptions of place and human encounter. The escalating political, economic, environmental, and public health crisis has revealed a tenuous, yet insistent desire for connectivity across space and time.
Translocality seeks to unite human and nonhuman communities in the Bay Area socially, physically, and sonically as a living network of sentient beings. This open call invites applicants to propose soundscapes to activate sound art in Bay Area locations to:
- Recalibrate our sensitivity to living realities existing beyond the individual self - Connect us to the complex weaving of stories, histories, and ecologies of place - Investigate vestiges of memory materialized through objects, land, and architecture - Imagine future possibilities for collective transformation in the SF Bay Area
