(A)WAKE Heritage Studios [postponed]
We are postponing this event until next year!
Creating a space for WANA diaspora electronic music artists to explore their cultural heritage in a digital age.
The aim of the Heritage Studio is to create an environment allowing a new generation of West Asia and North African (WANA) electronic music artists to connect with others and disseminate their messages in a way that secures space for WANA diaspora culture and thought in the future.
Heritage Studio aims to create a research, music and design practice artist research platform for WANA diaspora artists to explore their cultural heritage in a digital age and give wings to their ideas as at the same time professionalizing their practices and talent development via cross-border long-term collaborations.
With the Rotterdam club/space MONO as its home base, (A)WAKE provides a space for the in-between voices with multiple cultural backgrounds. The direction of (A)WAKE is driven by questioning the emancipatory potential of the digital world in favor of equal access and mutual cultural exchange between WANA and West Europe. Through the focus on these two regions they aim towards creative and critical approaches which challenge the greater North-South power dynamics through art and digital culture.
