Local people creating projects that make Southwark fantastic place to live, work and relax.
We are based at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe, where we organise a soundcamp and produce Reveil. Reveil relays live sounds of forests, prairies, urban centres, mountains and the deep oceans, transmitted by a streamers who get up before daybreak and use phones, laptops and Raspberry Pi's to send in real time sounds of their locations. We mix the programme at a popup studio in the SHED, it's hosted by Wave Farm in Acra, New York, and broadcast in full on WGXC 90.7FM, Resonance Extra, and other stations. Visitors can follow the show live on site in a listening tent at Stave Hill, where we also organize a free programme of workshop and walks, including a dawn chorus walk with an ornithologist on Sunday morning. There is good food, cakes, drinks and coffee through the weekend, and space for about 30 tents where you can sleep out in the Stave Hill meadow.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Together, the activities at the soundcamps and Reveil bring together many scattered points on the map, where human and non human communities meet. These are places like Stave Hill where people are directly and creatively involved in the local environment, whether in rural areas or the inner city. Over the soundcamp weekend it becomes possible to hear these different initiatives as a common project.
