Start time: Wednesday 18:00 (01 August)

An intensive residential course in Gois, Portugal, bringing together visual artists and musicians to work collaboratively over ten days, creating new works combining photography, moving image, music, and sound art.

August 1-12, 2018

Surrounded by the beautiful mountainside scenery of Gois, Portugal, Other Lands Other Sounds 2018 offers a supportive environment for advanced musicians and visual artists (professionals, amateurs, students) who want to develop their practice through cross-arts experimentation and collaboration. The theme of this year's workshop will be "(land)scape/paisagens".

Sessions will be balanced between led workshops, creative group work, individual study, and one-to-one tutorials with course leaders. Musicians will work closely with composer Filipe Sousa to explore composition, improvisation, and collaborative music-making processes. Visual artists will work with Beatriz Martinez, exploring photography and video, merging aesthetics and concept into multi-disciplinary projects. In the second half of the course, small cross-arts groups will form and work towards the curation of a final group show. Artistic outcomes may encompass anything from installations, to live performance, to performance art, and more.

Participants will gain insight into their own personal practice, as well as how to navigate in a group dynamic. They will develop tools for working with artists from different backgrounds, learning how to translate ideas and processes across mediums.
