Help us help you; become a supporting member

With less than two weeks until the start of Sound Walk September 2021, we’re close to 100 events and pieces that will compete for the SWS21 Awards. Thanks to you, this is shaping up to be a wonderful, eclectic, online and offline, experience. Take a peek at the schedule, and this year’s new work.

Support walk · listen · create

After last year’s Sound Walk September, we started taking steps to formalise walk · listen · create as a legal entity. Due to our team being spread out over three countries, on two continents, the many restrictions related to COVID, also for sending physical mail, and some bureaucracy, this took a bit longer than anticipated, but in the middle of this year, we finally managed. walk · listen · create is now registered as a non-profit, in Belgium.

Over the last two years, we’ve worked at expanding Sound Walk September, which this year, with Cona in the lead, sees the first instalment of Sound Walk City. Meanwhile, we’ve brought walking art, and sound walking, more into the mainstream, particularly exemplified by, in the last year, a number of mentions and interviews in mainstream media. Somewhat unexpectedly, helped by global COVID restrictions, which limited many in their movements, while also longing for a way to connect, and relax.

Last year, we started with the bi-weekly series of online cafés, which continue to bring artist together to learn from each other’s work. 
And, we grew our online network from some 250 participants at the end of SWS20, to, now, close to 2000. 

But also, we have worked hard at this, as volunteers. Which has meant we needed to do everything ourselves, or ask others to contribute for free, too. Even though, thankfully, the cafés generate a tiny bit of revenue.

Now, with the objective of becoming somewhat more sustainable, we ask you to support walk · listen · create, financially, by becoming a paying member.
As a contributing member, you will help us to be able to continue our work, in connecting walking artists, and in reaching a broader public with your, our, work.

And, also, besides that warm and fuzzy feeling of doing the right thing, as a supporting member, you will get free access to all cafés for the duration of your membership, and to the recordings of all past cafés.
We’ve got a café on every Tuesday in September. Imagine the savings that alone will give you! 🙂

If you sign up for a year’s membership before the end of September, we’re also throwing in a few extra perks. Check it out.

Help us help you, support walk · listen · create, today!
