***IMPORTANT NOTE: Soundwalks are free, but capacity is limited. Participants MUST register in advance here:
If you do not register we can not guarantee that there will be a spot available for you on the day of the Soundwalk.

This soundwalk explores active ways of hearing public places, especially listening for pleasure. It invites us to transform our attention and sensations of sound, using optional listening tools and experiments. We’ll experience different acoustic environments within a 2 km distance, as we wander from Vancouver Public Library towards the waterfront.

Optional Preparation:

• Download & install the free Zoom Handy Recorder App for smartphones (and bring your own headphones), and/or…
• Bring your field recorder if you have one (and bring your own headphones).
• There will 2 portable field recorders available to borrow during the walk. Please email [email protected] to reserve one of the recorders (please bring your own headphones; splitters can be provided for pairs listening together).
• Other listening paraphernalia will be provided. All items are sanitized and individually packaged for distribution.

Accessibility information: Light to moderate walking, possibly some stairs. The route can be adjusted around stairs with advance notice. Please contact [email protected] if you have any accessibility concerns or other questions.

Note: This walk will end near Devonian Park, about 2 km from the starting point. We invite you to stay in the area following the Soundwalk to take in Ben Brown’s Sound Sculptures performance beginning at 6PM at the Solo public sculpture in the park.
