Mixing in the winners’ circle

20 Nov, 2022

Now that the shortlist for Soundwalks September Awards has been announced, you will start to see featured blog posts written by the shortlist creatives that will provide context to each of their sound walk compositions, so read on about ‘Wandering the (wild) smart city’, as Jo Scott reveals the ‘how’ she created her shortlisted piece in Manchester, UK.

It might be a continent with lots of space but you’ll be surprised how limited the opportunities are for taking a walk in Australia. You can join Molly Wagner in our next Café event on Tuesday, in which she tells us about the creation of her art book ‘No Trespassing’ which documents her attempted peace walk, from the suburbs to the outback in New South Wales.

We’re delighted to celebrate the award-winning Urban Tree Festival,  co-founded by myself and three others in 2018, it has become a hugely popular celebration each May. For the last three years, it has run a very successful writing competition and this year,  walk · listen · create will host the writing competition administration.  It all kicks off on Sunday 4 December, with a free online creative writing workshop facilitated by the Urban Tree Festival’s writers-in-residence Joanna Wolfarth (prose) and M.L. Grieve (poetry), who together chose ‘Secrets of The Trees’ as the theme for 2023 competition.

We’ve been looking into the archives, not just our own, but those of other institutions, to search out examples of creative walking initiatives and walking art. We are going to be setting up a regular online drop-in meeting for anyone who would like to help us in our detective work in tracking down overlooked or forgotten walking pieces.  Look out for monthly posts and invitations in the near future, to join as a ‘Walking Detective’.
