Owing to the Rail Strike this event has been POSTPONED – new date to follow.

The Hampstead Heath Sound Walk explores the sonic topography surrounding and encompassing one of London’s most beloved green spaces, Hampstead Heath. We will begin at Hampstead Heath Overground Station, taking in the sounds of busy London life. Then, following the paths and walking trails, we will explore and uncover the varying sonic spaces the heath has to offer. From dog walkers, swimmers, wildlife and open space, together as a group we will observe how the rise and fall in elevation alters the auditory space around us.

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
