Part of Our Biennale
Learn to create sound art inspired by your local environment with sound artist Jo Kennedy, and help create a public exhibition!
Girls and young people of marginalised genders in Kirklees aged 11-16 years old are invited to join this free online six week course during January – February 2021.
During the course you will:
- learn about ‘soundwalks’
- make an environmental soundwalk using free apps
- create interactive sound objects
- collaborate on an environmentally-themed
interactive sound installation for public display
Six weekly sessions will be held online via Zoom. You’ll also complete tasks in between and receive 1-2-1 support and advice. You’ll learn new skills in sound recording as well as how a range of artists are using sound art to encourage people to think and behave differently about the environment.
We welcome participants with all levels of music and/or technology experience. No prior experience is necessary, you don’t have to be able to play a musical instrument and the sessions are free of charge.
