Even before the pandemic the UK, along with many other countries, has seen a shift in how we want to value the way we engage in cultural activities, culminating in the Arts Council England’s 10-year strategy of “Let’s Create”, firmly focussing on supporting access of communities and individuals to cultural production. 

For Carola Boehm a musician-tech-academic, Luigi Sacco’s concept of Culture 3.0 is a key one, characterised by ‘everyday creativity’,  co-creation, open platforms, ubiquitously available production tools and individuals constantly shifting and renegotiating their roles between producing and consuming content. This ‘doing away’ with gatekeeping systems supports access, diversity and is evidenced to simply make all our lives healthier, happier, more creative and more resilient. 

In testing that notion, Carola Boehm took some walks and documented them in a few twitter threads. These #culture30 walks aimed at making visible how places that have attended specifically to cultural policy have almost unknowingly enhanced the everyday creativity that one encounters on a simple 30 minute walk to work. One by one, a #culture30walk told a story of how culture30 a city really was. 

In this talk Carola Boehm shares and discuss how this experience interfaces with those of the walking artist community in a Walk Listen Café moderated by Jez Hastings.

Touching Sound

Dawn Matheson and Olivia Brouwer

Partnering with the Canadian National Instate for the Blind and supported by the Ontario Arts Council, Touching Sound is a sensory-led nature walk and workshop that was available for individuals with sight loss. Social practice and sound artist, Dawn Matheson, along with Olivia Brouwer, a partially-blind artist, led the work. The workshop involved the creation of sound-activated mixed media sculptures based on recordings and sensory activities while walking in nature at the Guelph Arboretum. Mobiles created from the workshop were also temporarily exhibited at the Guelph Civic Museum from July-August 2023. A second workshop will be held in Waterloo, Ontario on Saturday, May 25th, 2024 from 1-3pm at the Walter Bean Grand River Trail and Waterloo Public Library Eastside Branch. The exhibition will be held at The Button Factory from June to July 2024.
