Sounds to Keep project

Activity: Consultancy


I was successful in securing a South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership internship award hosted by Open Strings Music (OSM), 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 explored the use of sound as a research tool and for community engagement and wellbeing purposes. We delivered a series of soundwalks and sound foraging activities to engage local residents in The Keep's sound collection. I led on the evaluation of this pilot project and undertook a monitoring, evaluation and impact review of OSM. These collaborative explorations into sound activities has fed into my PhD methodology of using sound to explore relationships to place.
