When: Saturday, April 13, 1-3pm

Starting from: Open Space (510 Fort Street, 2nd floor)

Admission: FREE


WHAT IS A SOUNDWALK? A Soundwalk is a silent walk along a planned route to experience a location’s ambiance and underlying rhythms. As we walk through familiar places, we inscribe our own stories onto the routes that we make. What do these everyday places sound like? Come explore the personal and public sounds of Victoria's downtown soundscape. It's a musical-sonic adventure that reveals the ordinary into the extraordinary!


Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing for an hour-long walk that will take place rain or shine.


Field Guides For Listeners is a collaboration between sound artist Jenni Schine and visual artist Jay White, which examines the relationship between art and science through studying the effects of salmon farming on the Pacific Coast of B.C. This ongoing project draws attention to salmon spawning and farming through Schine’s audio work and a graphic novel written and illustrated by White. The project is informed by a series of residencies at the remote Salmon Coast Field Station (SCFS) in Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw territory (Broughton Archipelago), B.C.


The gallery exhibition will be open to the public April 12-May 31, 2019, Tuesday-Saturday from 12-5pm. Admission is free / by donation.


The exhibition will feature a number of related events, including...


Opening reception: Friday, April 12, 7:00 10:00 p.m.

Art, Science, and Salmon: Open Discussion: Saturday, April 13 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
