Are you looking for work experience as a creative workshop assistant? We are seeking friendly, outdoors-loving volunteers, to support our upcoming Nature Recording workshops for Solace.
Our Nature Sound Recording workshops allow participants to explore the nearby rural settings in the Sussex Downs, taking sound recordings of the landscape and wildlife. They will also learn how to turn a mobile device into a field recorder, and have a go at manipulating and experimenting with the sound content they have collected.
The work will feature in our interactive sound and video installation, next exhibiting at Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft 25 February - 1 March, and DC1 Gallery from 28 March - 8 April.

More about Solace:
Solace has been designed to get local families involved in more experimental art. From summer 2019 to spring 2020, it invites audiences to ask questions about our relationship with open and urban spaces, wellbeing and digital authenticity. The works created by artists Karen Tilley and Kevin Grist, also includes digital content captured by local people.
The project includes several strands: Input from local people recording nature sounds at outdoor workshops or in their own garden, 3 exhibitions of the installation in Seaford, Ditchling and Eastbourne, and Artist talks.
To get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave us a message on 01634 540787.
