Join the SOUNDkitchen collective on a guided SOUNDwalk, to experience the Grand Union Canal and the backstreets of Digbeth through your ears. This often overlooked but varied urban landscape, close to the city centre, presents a rich listening environment for those who take the time to stop and listen.

Using some simple listening exercises participants will be encouraged to tune into the sounds around them, actively listening to the ever-changing sonic features. Specialist microphones will augment the walker's hearing ability to rediscover the environment from differing sonic perspectives. Come and listen under water, discover hidden sounds and enjoy the rhythms of passing trains.

The walk lasts about an hour. Places for each walk are strictly limited.
