CFP Journal Cidades Comunidades e Territórios
Following the stimulating reflections and debates which took place at the KISMIF International Conference “Underground Music Scenes and DIY Cultures”, held at Porto between the 8th and the 11th July 2014, we come now to challenge the participants and invite them to the submission of papers in the different study-areas regarding music and cultural scenes, communities, identities and urban cultures.
We will focus in this special dossier in the undeniable connection between music and artistic scenes and its urban context. Papers should discuss the construction and development of music and artistic scenes around the world, and their role in the collective construction of identities and memory. Approaching the city as context and catalyzer for the scenes, themes such as the following, among others, are clearly welcomed: youth identities, artifacts and their spatial inscription; underground economies and geographies of contemporary creative cities; careers and alternative paths for musical and artistic intervention in the city; urban intervention projects focused on arts and music; urban atmospheres and cultural identities.
This call expects to correspond to the central axis of development of the social sciences concerned with arts, creativity and social innovation, evidencing how musical and artistic scenes play a key role in the creation of collaborative methodologies and strategies and in the enhancement of participation and empowerment enabling the generation of value and social innovation in the contemporaneity.
Main Themes addressed: Music, identity and collective urban memory; Music, youth cultures and cities; DIY, underground and territorialized creative dynamics in the urban space; Arts, creativity and social innovation; Arts, urban cultures, communities and empowerment; Arts, civic participation and youth integration.
