These hands-on and interactive workshops will run in tandem with Sonic Acts Academy. They are an opportunity for our audience to engage with and contribute to the broader discussions that will open up over the weekend. The texts produced at the Critical Academy workshop will be posted on the Sonic Acts blog and will be available online. Speculation as Interface, led by artists Mario de Vega and Victor Mazón Gardoqui, will instigate a discussion around alternative ways of creating communities. Enrolment for this year is now closed, but it’s a good opportunity to pin it for next year.
