Encrypted Sounds of Wellbeing combines community engagement, collaboration with a broad cohort of artists, public involvement and the commissioning of new work by selected artists. Having developed the concept and secured funding before the pandemic hit, Leila adapted to the restrictions, moved the project online in order to keep it going through lockdown and presents it here as an online exhibition. There is also an IRL counterpart, which can be viewed at The Exchange Bar, 50 Rutland Street, Leicester, LE3 1RD from 10th to 18th October.
The digital opening event for Encrypted Sounds of Wellbeing presents music, sound and video works by artists and musicians that Leila feels speak to the strange times we are currently living through. Each segment is approximately 3 minutes and each one is very different to the next. Total running time 45 minutes.
Leila hopes to provide a more nourishing alternative to what Saturday nights have become during lockdown: distracting ourselves with social media or another boxset.
