of Sound


Walking Festival of Sound is a transdisciplinary event exploring the role of walking through and listening to our everyday surroundings. It combines a number of free and public events including walking performances and walking seminars which take place in diverse public spaces around Stockholm. Evening events informed by walking practices take place in various event spaces (see more details in the program section). Walking Festival of Sound facilitates a meeting point for an international network of practitioners and researchers interested in sound and walking. Through diverse events we explore how walking and listening practices can augment and challenge the way we perceive, navigate through, and care for our shared environments.

The Walking Festival of Sound is funded by the Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice

The program of events is organized and curated by Tim Shaw and Jacek Smolicki
