What is Convention#1?

It is not a festival, it is not a convention.
Convention#1 is to be understood in its literal sense; it is a gathering of minds and ideas where we examine this year's topic "Sounding gender - in Search of the sonic self".
We wish to pose questions that challenges conventions and ideas in search of new ways of understanding the world we live in.
We embark on this exploration through the the eyes of artistic practice, to expand the understanding of how gender influences modes of production and reception in the field of music and sound art as an artistic and creative intersection.
We want to open the door and put the artists in the spotlight, while we invite the public to participate and engage on different terms, different ways and different levels, formed by virtue of the presented work, ideas and conversations.


How to get there:

The Closest airport is Tirstrup (AAR).
It is also possible to fly to Aalborg or Billund. It will take approx 1 hour 45 min to reach Aarhus from each of the two latter airports.You can fly to Copenhagen too, but we advice you to take a flixbus from there as the national train service is not reliable.
