28 Sep - 11 Oct, 2022

You are invited to join us for SoundTracks, a series of free, family-friendly guided walks using sound and listening to connect people, nature, and history, and explore wellbeing.
Local sound artist Emma Welton has been working with RAMM curator Tom Cadbury to explore the past and present of the Green Circle, a network of paths and lanes encircling Exeter. Now we need your help bring the routes to life on a group walk. Emma will lead you along parts of the Mincinglake and Exwick sections of the Green Circle, and together you will notice the sounds around you, and imagine the sounds of the past and future.
Two of the walks are aimed at adults with pre-schoolers, and will be suitable for pushchairs. Each walk will last approximately 1.5 hours at a gentle pace, on some rough or wet terrain, so appropriate footwear such as walking boots is recommended.

SoundTracks is informed by research into the benefits of nature on wellbeing by the Rowan Group, and University of Exeter Profs James Clark (History) and Stephen Rippon (Archaeology). It is a pilot project of the Creative Arc, a unique collaboration between the University of Exeter, Exeter City Council and RAMM to explore how the museum and its collections can help shape a better Exeter.
