World Listening Day 2019

You are invited to participate in World Listening Day 2019, an annual global event held every 18 July. Dawn meet up. Location To be Announced (will be close to seafront in Hastings). Coffee and chat afterwards. FREE event but please register at link below.

Since its inception in 2010, dozens of organizations and thousands of people from six continents have participated in World Listening Day.

This year’s theme is ‘LISTENING WITH’ created by internationally acclaimed sound artist Annea Lockwood.



Listening With…

… the neighbourhood – at dawn.

… an awareness that all around you are other life-forms simultaneously listening and sensing with you – plant roots, owls, cicadas, voles – mutually intertwined within the web of vibrations which animate and surround our planet.

World Soundscape Project

18 July is the birth date of renowned Canadian composer, music educator and author, R. Murray Schafer. His World Soundscape Project developed the fundamental ideas and practices of acoustic ecology in the 1970s. These inform the current, burgeoning interest in our changing acoustic environment. Thus, World Listening Day honours Schafer’s contribution to understanding our world.

NB: Children who can participate in listening for the full hour and a half are welcome. Silence encouraged.
