Collision & Conflict is a geolocated sound walk along Hadrian’s Wall national trail, triggering artistic responses connected to specific locations on the route enjoyed through headphones.

In December 2020, Green Croft arts commissioned 14 artists who had strong links to Northumberland, Cumbria and nationalities that reflected the past diversity of the communities that built, manned and lived along Hadrian’s Wall. The 9 commissions are creative responses in song, music, sound, story, spoken word and prose which explore the historical, archeological and environmental conflicts and issues that affect contemporary rural communities today.

Collision & Conflict launched in April 2021 and will be available until the end of September 2021.
