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 are also temporarily exhibited at the Guelph Civic Museum.
A second workshop and exhibition in Waterloo, Ontario will be announced in Spring 2024.
This program has been generously funded by the Ontario Arts Council.
