An evening to bring together the different design and creativity actors in Bilbao-Bizkaia. A way of starting this process of active listening to the ecosystem together, which this year is proposed with ERRESONANTZIA. An invitation to begin to vibrate with the programme of activities to enjoy over the next 10 days. A meeting that helps to influence us towards being open to establishing symbiotic and mutualistic relations, both between the creative sectors themselves and with other economic and social spheres.
BELARRIREKIA will begin by immersing us in a sensory experience led by Rubén Rámila. Amalio Rey will be responsible for the keynote address, talking about design and creativity as exercises in collective intelligence, based on deep listening to the context and the ecosystem, as something not so much individual, but collective, polyphonic, from which a common echo emerges. We will hear the echo of the diversity of experiences of the professionals of the local ecosystem, through four cases: Maraka team will suggest that we listen to the users; Laurita Siles from Mutur Beltz will focus on the environment; Paula Cabo from Cala Creative Studio will help us to perceive what the materials tell us, and we will listen to the sound itself being designed with Sara Lenzi. Alex Filiatreau from Apitropik will present the Disoinua What does design sound like? project, a research/exhibition produced by the BIDC, to find out how design is understood socially, how it vibrates in the streets and how people feel it in their everyday lives; and he will also propose a small participatory activity to gather the impressions of those present. And finally, Mikel Arce will introduce us to the work done specifically by 4th year Installations and Sound Space students from the Faculty of Fine Arts’ Department of Sculpture and Art and Technology at the UPV-EHU, which can be enjoyed that day in the Cúpula Hall. Vanessa Sánchez will accompany us, acting as the guiding thread throughout the session. Furthermore, there will be some time to socialise, listen to each other and network between 8pm and 9.30pm.
Does that sound thought-provoking?
