Interactive activities invite Book Club members to engage more deeply with Arrival City and contribute their own experiences and stories to the Club’s reading.
With our City Soundwalk and City Photowalk activities, readers have the opportunity to submit their own sound recordings and photosets exploring “arrival” in their own city. Soundwalk and Photowalk submissions will be posted in galleries here on the City Builder Book Club blog.
City Soundwalk: February 12
Share the sounds of your city. Create an audio recording of 2 minutes or less that demonstrates the auditory sense of place in your neighbourhood or city.
Go for a walk and capture what you hear along the way. Record the coming and going of crowds through a station. Move through a market and catch clips of conversations. Like a radio dispatch from a reporter in the field, we want to hear your city, encapsulated in sound.
Submitted Soundwalks will be posted on the City Builder Book Club blog (with attribution) on February 12, 2015.
Listen to a sample Soundwalk here.
Wondering where to begin? Check out the Centre for City Ecology’s Toronto sample Soundwalk.
