As part of the Regional Futures - Box of Possibilities exhibition, sound artist Kim V. Goldsmith will guide a soundwalk through Wingham Brush Nature Reserve to the Manning River.
This walk will provide insight into Goldsmith’s practice, the act of active and reciprocal listening she uses in her work, and how soundscapes are shaped by the landscape, its inhabitants, and us. Sounds from Wingham Brush, including the grey-headed flying foxes, are part of the soundscape compositions in the exhibition. It provides an opportunity to experience even a familiar environment in new ways.
The walk will go for about an hour, with an opportunity to meet after to talk further for those who can stay. Bring a brimmed hat (in case of splatterings from flying fox activity), a long-sleeved top/pants, and walking shoes. We’ll meet at the parking area near the river on Farquhar Street. This will be where we’ll come back to.
Bookings are required as places are limited due to the nature of the walk.
