Discover an immersive sonic walk and workshop in this aural exploration of the Birrarung, which invites participants to partake in sound walking as an active creative practice. Collective listening enhances the connection with the natural environment. The workshop also covers acoustic ecology as a form of sound design, and participants will be guided in taking field recordings. Bring your phone or other recording devices.

Join Andrew Skeoch at 9 am for Acoustic Ecologies during ‘A Day at Heide’ for Open Nature. The event includes a peaceful listening walk and field recording activity. Head to the Heide cafe for a morning tea before the insightful Yaluk Langa ecology workshop with Heide Gardener Luke Murchie at noon. Refuel at the Heide cafe or enjoy a picnic lunch in the gardens before visiting the Heide Museum.

Please note that museum entry is not included, and individual bookings are required for each workshop session. This event is presented in partnership with Heide Museum of Modern Art.
