Update To Event Time

Due to unforseen circumstances this event will now run from 11:00 - 12:30 on Saturday 2 April (instead of 12:30 to 14:00). We apologies for any inconvience caused. 

Join Nikki Sheth for a guided walk around Birmingham City Centre to explore interesting and sometimes hidden listening points in the city. The walk encourages a deeper connection with the natural environment and a new awareness of the hidden sounds around us – both natural and man-made.

Nikki is a sound artist who uses field recordings to produce site-specific soundscape works, and was involved in the field recording of BIFoR FACE with Annie Mahtani.

This event is presented as part of The Air We Breathe, a brand-new public programme with an exhibition, activities and events that explore the close relationships between us, our environment and our air quality. From a hydrogen train to a sci-fi forest, visit The Exchange to discover the work being done by the University of Birmingham to deliver clean air both here in Birmingham and around the world – and how you can get involved.
