Abstract or Description

If you’ve found solace in the outdoors over the past year, join researchers from Goldsmiths to experience the River Quaggy in a new way

Whether it’s the dawn chorus or underwater recordings, explore the soundscape of the urban River Quaggy.

Understand how the river impacts the local area and vice versa through an interactive app, contribute your own field recordings at our participatory workshop and sound walk, and hear from resident scientific and cultural experts, including John Drever and Emma Jackson, about the importance of the river to both the community and local eco-system.

Learn how people interact with the Quaggy and how this heavily engineered South London river is becoming re-naturalised.
This event is open to all and carried out in conjunction with the Quaggy Waterways Action Group (QWAG).

Sounding the River Quaggy is part of Being Human Festival, the UK’s only national festival of the humanities.
