Listening to the Port is a Speculative Soundwalk.

You are invited to navigate the city at your own pace, listening to soundscape compositions that imagine the history and possible future of the region. Using your own device and headphones, you embody your future existence in Port Adelaide, listening and imagining what the future might bring.

Developed by OSCA (Open Space Contemporary Arts) Artist in Residence Keira Simmons during the first stage of their residency at Post Office Projects Studios. Supported by Carclew.

This project was made on the ancestral lands of the Kaurna People of the Adelaide Plains. I acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of this country, to elders past and present.
