common grounds festival-sound and the others

Common Grounds Festival builds on the observation that sound is often experienced by artists as a means to work which fall between the chairs, in the perception of the policy makers just as well as of the public. This festival however aims to highlight sound rather as a medium to connect disciplines and consequently to work with different communities. By discovering other cultures rather than forcing the white Western culture upon them, it is an ideal means as well for participatory art work, which in its turn will open up new audiences. Sound is omni-present, versatile and – through modern technology – easy to use.
