Please note: This event is for trans, queer and intersex Black people and people of colour only. Please be mindful when booking.

Drawing upon previous work from B.O.S.S. such as a sound meditation and short film, participants will be called to reflect upon the role sounds play in their life. You will also be opening yourself to new experiences with sound from the selected pieces, reflective exercises and discussion with others in the group.

The workshop will thread together the multi-faceted ways B.O.S.S. delve into sound: music, chant, voice, soundscapes, found sound and ambient, considering what each medium brings.

By opening up such a space, we hope to give room to us as QTIBPOC experiencing the healing, generative and euphoric power of sound.

About the workshop leaders:
Black Obsidian Sound System (B.O.S.S.) was established in the summer of 2018 with the intention of bringing together a community of queer, trans and non binary people of colour involved in art, sound, music and radical activism. Following in the legacies of sound system culture B.O.S.S.'s intention is to learn, build and sustain a resource for collective struggles. The system, based in London, is available to use or rent by community groups & others with the purpose of amplifying, connecting and uplifting QTIBPOC.

You can read more about our ticketing system here: glasgowzinelibrary.com/ticketing.

Please be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it.
