RSA Brighton: The Future of Urban Sound Planning
Wed 22 February 2017, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
Do we need a fundamentally new approach to urban sound planning?
Brighton and Hove has been at the centre, globally, of new work challenging conventional approaches to urban planning and noise. Bold, innovative projects including the ground-breaking arts based intervention West Street Story have put Brighton and Hove at the heart of the emerging new science of ‘soundscape’.
Join us for an evening filled with interactive, provocative, and creative explorations of how sound connects us through arts, culture and urban sound planning featuring:
Acclaimed TED speaker on the power of sound Julian Treasure, The Sound Agency
Body language expert (exploring how we react to sound) Dr Harry Witchel, Brighton and Sussex Medical School
Arts and culture expert, White Night curator Donna Close, University of Brighton / AMP Culture
Architect and urban soundscape designer Andy Knowles, Anderson Acoustics
Placemaking and urban design expert Dr Cara Courage
Soundscape expert and researcher, Lisa Lavia, Sounding Brighton
Soundscape, engagement, and local government, Matt Easteal, Brighton & Hove City Council
and more …
During the evening, we’ll explore:
1) When does sound become noise?
2) Can we really have it all - vibrant, exciting 24/7 cities, yet places where we can still have peace and relaxation when and where we want it? How is this determined? Who decides?
3) How do we promote and manage new co-creation models with researchers, artists, designers, and residents?
