Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.
Our program stages encounters and creates spaces for sonic experience, and critical reflection on sonority and systems of sonic affect. To do this, we host experiences at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental music, supporting artists to produce performances and concerts, exhibitions, talks, reading groups, workshops and recordings in art spaces, music venues and other sites.
Liquid Architecture is curatorially driven and our methodology embraces research, collaborations and imaginations. We want to echo beyond local conversations, problems, debates and questions, to reverberate across media and disciplines, and so to sound out new discourses about the audible world, and beyond.
We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first sovereign owners of this unceded country. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and becoming.

DATA ACCESS AND FURTHER INFORMATION
Anthropology of Bla(c)k Consciousness
Meeting at Blak Dot, walking around neighbourhood, returning to gallery for talking and making, bringing together Black Quantum Futurism, this mob, Alterity Collective, Still Nomads and Liquid Architecture.
Anthropology of Consciousness brings together fieldsounds gathered through neighbourhood walks and free style poetry to awaken past and future memories. With artists working on country, on stolen country and on borrowed country, this event represents a convergence of interests in decolonisation and diasporic thinking, transformed by collaboration and conversation into soundscapes, publications, poetry; aka tools to create political subjectivity.
This event comes a day after Invasion Day. Because of the significance of this date in Australian history, we wanted to convene a get-together to harness sound and listening in respectful ways. From visiting luminaries who are thinking through their own battles to locals who are working on multiple fronts, the event offers an experimental space to draw on global black quantum methodologies in the processing of ongoing cultural trauma.
The event will be co-facilitated by a range of inspiring thinkers, activists and musicians including Black Quantum Futurism along with this mob, alterity and Still Nomads. Presented by Liquid Architecture.
Black Quantum Futurism: Anthropology of Consciousness
This workshop led by Rasheedah Phillips and Camae Ayewa of Black Quantum Futurism uses fieldsounds gathered through neighborhood walks and free style poetry to awaken past and future memories of a particular location, some of which are transformed into soundscapes and poetry zines. Meeting at Blak Dot, walking around neighbourhood and returning to gallery for talking and making.
this mob: Blak Futurism in the City
Some of this mob’s future-thinking blakfullas will lead a yarning circle – led by Timmah Ball and Neil Morris – Blak Futurism in the City, which will ask people to imagine what an Aboriginal city could be, free from the hostility of colonialism. If we made and created our own cities by choice rather than force, what would they be like and feel like. Could we love them?
Still Nomads: Black Future Collage
This workshop is part archive, part zine allowing participants to create their own Black Future. Facilitators Peter Waples-Crowe, Hayley Millar-Baker, Ruth Ruach and Mary Bekele encourage participants to bring photographs or other material that represents their current neighborhood or perceptions of home. Facilitated by this mob, participants will be given context of their surroundings here in Naarm (so-called Melbourne) and with the guidance of Black in 35mm & Black Quantum Futurism, participants will learn how to use zines as a method of black archiving and black documentation to imagine Black Futures.We acknowledge the Wurundjeri, Boonwurrung, Taungurong, Dja Dja Wurrung and the Wathaurung people of the Kulin Nation as the custodians of the land in which this event takes place, and we recognise that sovereignty was never ceded. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
