Raquel Castro (born in Viseu, 1976) is sound artist, curator and filmmaker, currently lives and works in Lisbon. In 2003, a video project about oral memory made her travel around Portugal and live in several regions of the country, collecting voices, images, sounds and children's drawings. She started to think about the way sound relates to the identity of a place, so she decided to start a research on sound studies. She directed the documentary Soundwalkers which was presented in Subtropics Festival in Miami and screened at various conferences of sound art and documentary film festivals. As a freelancer, she regularly directs and edits tv commercials, videoclips and other institutional works. As a teacher, she taught Direction and other disciplines at Universidade Lusíada, in Lisbon. As a curator, Raquel is the founder and director of Invisible Places International Symposium and the environmental sound art festival Lisboa Soa. Currently, she is a post-doc researcher at CICANT - Centre for Research in Applied Communication, Culture and New Technologies under the project “Aural Experience, Territory and Community”, funded by FCT.
