Sound Walk (Accessible Program)

This walk is led by audio artist Ernie Dulanowsky. Dulanowsky will guide participants through an urban landscape of sounds beyond human hearing generated by electronics, wildlife and insects. Using an array of homemade listening devices, Dulanowsky will make the back alleys and laneways of the Cathedral Village Neighbourhood and Les Sherman Park around the Art Gallery of Regina come alive with the secret world of sounds.

EVENT: Accessible Sound Walk DATE: Monday, June 6 TIME: 7-9PM LOCATION: Art Gallery of Regina, 2420 Elphinstone Street, Regina COST: Free

All children must be accompanied by an adult who takes responsibility for children's safety and conduct.

Participants should dress appropriately for this outdoor activity, wear walking shoes and bring water and snacks. In addition, participants should bring their own headphones; over-the-ear style headphones (as opposed to earbuds) are preferred.

Participants, the artists, and the walk leader will meet 15 minutes before the start time at the Art Gallery of Regina (inside the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre, 2420 Elphinstone Street). Walks will proceed throughout the surrounding parklands.

This walk is part of Linda Duvall and Jillian McDonald’s community-engaged art project for the Art Gallery of Regina, Messages from the Rocks – Stories of the Invisible. The artists invite people to imagine and share stories of the unseen forces that animate the land.

Nature walks direct attention to animals that we may not normally observe, spirits that live on the land and the un-observable slowness of geological change. Their project acknowledges non-Western systems of knowledge and the transformative power of imagination.
