SoundCon is an online conference happening this year and dedicated to explore several topics around sound. It is partnering with World Listening Day 2016 to offer live streaming of discussions and presentations around this year’s WLD theme, “Sounds Lost & Found”. It will take place in July 17-18, 2016 and there’s currently a call for participation and application.
“It is a peer-reviewed conference, curated by global leaders in the fields of art, activism, and academia. #SoundCon links local, in-person conference meet-ups around the world through a global, live-streaming video conference with live chat. It also offers an archived, video-on-demand version of the conference with comment discussion. #SoundCon also offers a global #SoundCon Network at Facebook; worldwide#SoundCon Radio; and a #SoundCon Speakers Bureau that books artists, activists, and academics at venues and universities around the world.”
