High Street Sound Walks: interviews with the artists

High Street Sound Walk artists

We are working with Historic England and the National Trust to launch a series of self-guided, immersive sound walks to help people discover the magic of their local high streets in September 2021.

Ahead of launching the Sound Walks on 10 September 2021, we have been catching up with the sound artists to find out more about the sound walks, the key themes, stories and sounds that are being explored, their relationship to the areas, what they hope audiences will experience from doing the sound walks, and much more.
