Related Activities

Soundpainting Workshop: Painting solidarity with Music and Lyric
As a parallel activity, integrated with the thematic axis, a soundpainting workshop will be held in which participants create in real time an interdisciplinary performance about solidarity with music and lyric. The sign language –originally created by the New Yorker musician Walter Thompson– will be learned while progressively proceeding in the development of the final performance. An open discussion, based upon the performance, will be held with the rest of participants. 
  • Addressed to: artists of all disciplines, amateurs or professionals, students, of any age and level.
  • Direction: Beatriz Franco Mielgo (París, León). Brochure.
  • The workshop will count with the participation of musicians of Juventudes Musicales – ULE
