I have been successful in securing a South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership internship award. I will be hosted by Open Strings Music, a local community music organisation and working in partnership with the Unlocking Our Sound Heritage programme, funded by the British Library and based at The Keep. The project will explore the use of sound as a research tool and for community engagement and wellbeing purposes. We will be delivering a series of sound walks and sound foraging activities to engage local residents in The Keep's sound archive. I am leading on the evaluation of this pilot project, which will feed into my PhD methodology of using sound to explore relationships to place.
