Sunday, 1 September 2019 and the week following
Sound Walk Sunday is a global community event, celebrating outdoor audio, geo-located, immersive performances, sound walks and audio-enhanced walking pieces, and is organized by the Museum of Walking in a collaboration with Made of Walking, and institutional and academic partners worldwide.
Sound Walk Sunday was inaugurated at the Made of Walking International Encounters at La Romieu, France on the 27 August, 2017, leading to a first map and directory of sound walks around the world, maintained and updated till today.
Sound Walk Sunday 2019 and the week following will see the inauguration of new sound walks, submitted in response to an open call, or created in the run up to Sound Walk Sunday. On Sound Walk Sunday we encourage, host and organize events related to sound walking worldwide, complemented with curated activities in hub cities including London, Sao Paulo and Melbourne and, we hope, with more to follow.
- The Museum of Walking will maintain a public archive of sound walks in an online directory.
- Sound Walk Sunday will facilitate a worldwide network of creatives, institutions and museums to share practices and knowledge around sound walks and walking pieces, by inviting and involving individuals and institution as partners of SWS as a platform for sharing practices and knowledge.
- Sound Walk Sunday will bring together a collaborative resource of educative materials, that will be available to the public, allowing broad groups of people to create their own sound walks.
The next edition of Sound Walk Sunday will happen on Sunday September 1st, 2019 and the week following.
