"Sonic Flâneurs: Feeling the creative city"

Published on : 25 July 2018

How does it feel walking down the streets of a creative city? Does it sound, smell, look or taste different?

Through the restitution of the "Sonic flâneurs" art project and a debate, this event is an invitation to discuss how we experience a creative city.

"Sonic flâneurs" is a project aimed at digitalising the embodied affective relationship to space in creative cities. It is led by the international students of the MSc in Management and Entrepreneurship in the Creative Economy of Audencia Business School and Nantes-based artist Mickaël Lafontaine. The students involved will unveil the artworks produced during a one-week workshop, and share their views on how the sounds of a city such as Nantes can be representative of its creative spirit.

This restitution will be followed by a debate at Mediacampus which will explore the outputs of this and similar projects, and will question the aesthetic experience provided by creative cities. Is it specific? Can it be designed? Panellists to include sound and space designers, artists, architects, activists and flâneurs.

Come and discover how Audencia is working on cultural and creative industries!
