|1 - 30 Sep, 2022|
Come September, we are nudging you into increasing your awareness of your immediate environment. We are partnering with Dérive app, the mobile app that helps you to get lost, through which we host an event that lasts throughout the whole of September.
Every 12 hours, starting September 1 at midnight (UTC), we will try to trigger an experience for you, with your immediate vicinity as your canvas. You can document these experiences directly in Dérive app, through photo, audio, or text, and/or you can document them on your platform of choice, be it Twitter, Instagram, SoundCloud, YouTube, or whatever the kids use, these days.
If you choose to share your work with the world, outside of Dérive app, consider adding the hashtags #SWS22 and #30DoP, for “Sound Walk September 2022” and “30 Days of Prompts” respectively.
Participation is free, open to all. You don’t have to tell us if you’re part of this. You can register, on this page, above, but this is not necessary. All this does is that we’ll send you a message a few times to remind you to start exploring.
During 30 Days of Prompts, every 12 hours, we will give you a prompt which, we hope, will make you more aware of your surroundings. The prompts might be text-based, audio-based, or image-based. Whether you document your experience, or how, is up to you.
