Join Dhaqan Collective to hear about their varied practice, current research & plans while in residence in Bricks' RELAY project space.
entry is free
Dhaqan Collective (Fozia Ismail, Ayan Cilmi & Asmaa Jama) explore, orality, ancestors, archives & identity. Their first project Camel Meat + Tapes, was a co-created project with Somali elders in Bristol looking at cassette tapes, migration, and oral histories. This was presented at Arnolfini gallery, as part of City Fellows. The second iteration of the project, funded by Arts Council England, explores the experimental sonic possibilities of cassette tapes, and the connections younger generations of Somalis have to them, and their cultures.
For their time with Bricks, Dhaqan Collective will explore the patterns that connect the sonic archives of Somali spirit possession rituals, finger weaving and EDM (electronic dance music).
After the talk, experience some of Dhaqan Collective's new and existing work in RELAY, some never before shown.
