Sound artist, musician, Sonic Liberation Front founder and Radio alHara راديو الحارة member Dirar Kalash delivers a special masterclass on sound and image, followed by an acoustic performance. Kalash will reflect on notions of unity and resistance through sound practices while addressing the inherently ephemeral and subjective nature of listening.

The Sonic Liberation Front was established as an act of resistance by a collective of sound artists who recorded the sound of protests in Palestinian streets, aiming to unite and support the people of Palestine. The initiative received international attention on 21 May 2021, while Palestinians were suffering from violence and attacks, when Radio alHara and the Sonic Liberation Front turned off their radio transmissions for 24 hours as a way to collectively reflect on the role and presence of sound in uniting against oppressors.
