Join us for a sound workshop for 15-25 year olds, exploring using or voices as tools inspired by our current exhibition Hollow Earth


We all make sound in our daily lives: when chatting to a friend, when running for the bus, when we cry or laugh. In this workshop we will explore how Collaborative Vocal Improvisation can help harness our innate genius for sound-making to co-create vocal music in the moment. 

When we sing our bodies become instruments, revealing subcutaneous cave networks which carry resonance through our pelvis, jaw, the curved dome of our skull, the bend of our spine… Using our voice as a tool, we will excavate these obscure passageways down through the strata of our inner soil to uncover our own unique sound. 

When we sing together we tap into deep reservoirs of collective imagery, memory and emotion we all carry inside ourselves, revealing our deep interconnectedness. 

Join us for a day of vocal games, creative play, circle singing and meditation. Open to all who want to explore their voice in a fun and safe environment, this workshop will explore how we can embody sound to encourage our own unique vocal expression, unlock power in our voice and make music spontaneously together. 

Bring yourself in comfy clothing that’s easy to move about in, an exercise mat if you have one, a bottle of water, and a bit of lunch.
