Sound Installation - Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS)

*Extended until Saturday, November 9

Artist affiliate at COHDS and current Masters student in Concordia's Individualized Studies program Veronica Mockler is presenting a sound installation imagined around an ongoing oral history project she initiated three years ago with Bobby and Susana Lavery, a republican activist couple living in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The work is shown part of the Acts of Listening Lab's symposium Listening, Performance, and Conflict from November 5 to 9 at Concordia University in the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. The sound piece can be experienced all day throughout the symposium in LB 1019 (1400 de Maisonneuve West, 10th floor). Envisioned as a retreat space for listening and reflexion, the invitation is extended to the community and students of the School of Irish Studies.

Come listen to Bobby and Susana while enjoying a cup of Barry's tea in this intimate analog installation!
