During the interactive installation Beyond The Babble Lucia Scazzocchio and Giota Alevizou invited participants to reflect upon their notions of identity, belonging, citizenship. Participants engaged in ‘reflecting’ on both aspects of their own identity and belonging but also their part in trying to change things around them.

On Tuesday March 14th 2017, Lucia and Giota also hosted a public discussion to reflect on the capacity that sonic art and digital storytelling may have for contextualing stories of identity and belonging. Participants who took part in the installation also offered their views about and the ways in which perspectives can be enriched if we escape our own 'personal babble' fed by social media and news agendas, and focus on expressing, and listening to, our own and others’ voices through the medium of audio. You can listen to the full conversation here in this podcast:
