We are delighted to confirm a live performance featuring participants who are taking part in Useful Tools – an electronic sound project with artist Hannah Sawtell. Through April and June Hannah has been working with Old Bort, Laura Fox, Khush Kali, Indira Lakshmi, Sam Owen, Heather Reid, Davinia-Ann Robinson, Natalie Roe, Emily Scarrott & Emily Warner to collaborate and build together a sonic performance.
Hosted on both floors at Centrala on the 23 June from 7-9pm the performance brings together work created through the group using a web-based sound programme coded in partnership between Sawtell and interdisciplinary artist and researcher Lizzie Wilson.The event is free to attend and is hosted by our Minerva Works neighbours, Centrala.

The event will be live streamed for those who want to join us from home.
Building on Sawtell’s interests in technology & access, Useful Tools provides an opportunity for women from a wide range of creative backgrounds to explore sound and performance. Paid bursaries have been provided to support time and access to the programme and participants were recruited through an open call in Spring of 2023.
Beyond the performance in Birmingham, Useful Tools will exist as a free to use, web based sound programme coded in partnership between Sawtell and interdisciplinary artist and researcher Lizzie Wilson.
Useful Tools is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
