Listening at the Growing Together Project
Two workshops looking into the nature of the allotment as a quiet green space and what that meant for the participants of the project.
We created sound maps to explore the different sound spaces we had moved through before arriving at the allotment and discussed what that felt like.
We did active listening exercises and shared our experiences, both in terms of what we could hear but also how that made us feel.
We also tried to communicate something special about the garden as a quiet space through drawings.
All of these activities helped us to open up to sound and listening in new ways. Next time, we will try to record and capture the unique soundscape of High Fields Ecological Allotment...
