Touching Sound Walk + Workshop

Held in Guelph, Ontario, Touching Sound is a sensory-led nature walk and workshop that was available for individuals with sight loss, and was in collaboration with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and social practice artist, Dawn Matheson. The workshop involved the creation of sound-activated mixed media sculptures based on recordings and sensory activities within the natural environment of the Guelph Arboretum. Artworks created from the workshop were also temporarily exhibited at the Guelph Civic Museum from July-August 2023.

A second workshop will be held in Waterloo, Ontario on Saturday, May 25th, 2024 from 1-3pm at the Walter Bean Grand River Trail and Waterloo Public Library Eastside Branch. The exhibition will be held at The Button Factory from June to July 2024. Click HERE to register.
