For World Listening Day 2019, Softday invited the public to join us for a soundwalk along and around the River Liffey.

This year, we are soundwalking in the context of Uisce Salach (Dirty Water).

Date: 18th of July 2019

Time: 11:00 - 14:00

Meeting point: The Point Luas stop (end-point for Red line) at 11:00

This World Listening Day 2019 soundwalk/workshop hosted by Softday will focused on the study of listening, creative soundwalking and the meditative practices of Tai Chi and Qigong. The workshop was intended to enhance the participants' perception of sound and silence, offering a unique approach for situated soundscapes, as well as offering movement/sound/and listening improvisations and strategies. These strategies are designed to enhance our skills in mindfulness, listening, and attuning to space, place, body and voice as instruments of creativity and well-being.
