Open Call for the creation of a Sound Walk in Wales, at 14000 euros

Be the first to favourite this.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority invites submissions for a Sound Walk commission as part of the Ancient Connections cross-border arts, heritage and tourism project linking North Wexford with North Pembrokeshire. The total commission is valued at €14,000 to include fees, materials, travel, accommodation, studio time, scripting, production, editing, community engagement, technical solutions, launch event, marketing and any other costs.

The National Park Authority is seeking a creative practitioner, or practitioners, to work collaboratively with the local community and stakeholders, to co-create a Sound Walk that will enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of St Non’s.

St Non’s Chapel and Holy Well near St David’s city in Pembrokeshire has for a long time been associated with the 5th Century Christian figure St Non, who is said to be the mother of St David, patron saint of Wales. This open access site on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, close to the city of St Davids, is traditionally held to be the birthplace of St David, the patron saint of Wales.

The Sound Walk will be available to audiences as a download that they can listen to on their own device.

Local ownership, developing community and pride of place are important goals. Access needs and the equal status of the Welsh language should be taken into consideration in developing the Sound Walk.

The Sound Walk should appeal to all interests and be in a style that will appeal to younger demographics as well as older ones.
