Slow Sound Walk | Soundscapes of the Avenue
Join us for a slow walk exploring the soundscape of the Avenue with sound artist Safeya Alblooshi.
In this new experimental series of slow walks, we invite designers, artists, writers, researchers, and critical thinkers to return to the space of the Avenue as a subject of their study. Encouraging participants to observe, read, and listen to their immediate built environments through unique creative prompts, these slow tours become site-specific projects that unfold as they are experienced.
This time, we are joined by sound artist Safeya Alblooshi who, through her own practice as well as collective observation, will guide participants to learn more about the soundscape of Alserkal Avenue.
