Woman, Life, Freedom: Sounds Of A Revolution

- Export as iCalendar
Location: Coventry Cathedral

Poster about the event. Info can be found in the text, too.

Sound has been a key conductor of the feminist mobilisations in Iran, which have mushroomed after the state killing of a 22-year-old Kurdish-Iranian woman, Mahsa Jina Amini, who died while in the custody of the morality police.

This evening will bring Woman, Life, Freedom to Coventry Cathedral, a centre for peace and reconciliation. The rage, anger, pain, hope and solidarity of the movement, will be placed in the vast volume and shifting light of the architecture.

Audiences will dwell on multi-media projections and a mixture of sounds. Along with musical performances, screening, performance of poetry and talks, you will also hear Shervin Hajipour's song BarayeLink opens in a new window, which was composed of tweets in Iran on why people are protesting. Becoming an anthem for Iranian protestors and in the diaspora, it picked up the Grammy award for ‘Best Song for Social Change’.

This event is supported by Sustainable Cities Global Research Priorities (University of Warwick), Centre for Feminist Research (Goldsmiths, University of London), Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies and the Centre for the Study of Women and Gender (University of Warwick).
