Sounds of the Sonic South

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Join us for an evening of audio stories, including the finalists for this years Sonic South competition: short audio documentaries of healthcare, medicine, and illness in the American South. The Southern Oral History Program (SOHP) invites producers to use archival interviews to create new and thought-provoking short-form audio documentaries, sound art, sonic experiments, and aural landscapes. Producers are encouraged to think creatively about format, structure, and style. For the 2019 Sonic South audio competition, In Sickness & In Health, producers chose from interviews with Southerners about health, illness, and medical care in their own lives, in their families and in their communities. This live listening event will contribute to a shared understanding of our past, and how that past connects with our present and informs our future.
