The 10th winter school organized by CRESSON is welcoming (again) this year the « B-AIR Art Infinity Radio » project supported by the Creative Europe Culture Program (EACEA).
As since 2013, the CRESSON winter schooltakes the form of a week of research and practices in order to discuss and explore the laboratory’s methods and concepts in their capacities to give some answers to a specific topic in link with the sound environment, its study and its transformations.
This year the theme is “Sound spaces in waiting”.The 2022 edition proposes to the participants to think more precisely about the cultural and spatial dimensions of the perception of ambiences by working on « sound spaces in waiting »: architects, urban planners, artists, designers, but also inhabitants, we conceive and occupy the public spaces of our cities and the landscaped space is often the place of various sound practices: words, musical listening, sports practices, walking, stay, meetings, etc. How can we design public space and its furniture to be less vulnerable? How can a public bench become a waiting sound space, ready to be activated by an individual (a hearing impaired person, a group, a child, etc.)? How can these urban objects be designed and constructed to provide multiple, sensitive and multicultural listening experiences? What kind of « sound spaces in waiting » can be designed and built to give or bring attention to the vulnerabilities and pluralities of uses and spaces?
The CRESSON WinterSchool will take place in parallel at the Ecole Nationale d’Architecture de Grenoble, and and at the Department of Architecture of the Polytechnic school of the University of Thessaly in Volos (Greece).
It will take place from Monday 17 January 2022 to 21 January 2021. The mornings will be dedicated to theoretical presentations (in English) and the afternoons (in French and Greek depending on the site) will be dedicated to the design and construction of a series of body-scale prototypes to think and experiment with these sound spaces in waiting.
