SECP Knowledge Exchange Event: Sounds to Keep
Piloting sound activities for community engagement & research

The Sounds to Keep project delivered soundwalks and a sound foraging workshop to engage local residents in the sound collections held at The Keep Archives in Autumn 2019. The partnership brought together Unlocking Our Sound Heritage, Open Strings Music and a Brighton University PhD internship, funded by the ESRC South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership. Together the partners explored how sound can be a tool for community engagement, wellbeing and research. This knowledge exchange event will share learning from this collaborative project:
