In October 2018 a group of children participated in Small Voices Louder where they were asked to follow ribbons and sit or lie in little exhibition tents decorated to inspire their imaginations. The participating children were then asked their opinions about some of the bigger issues in life, such as:
What do you worry about?
What do you hope for the future?
How are adults different to children?
How would you change the world for the better?
What is love?
This project is all about helping adults really hear children’s point of view. The children’s answers were recorded and short 3 to 4 minute sound scapes have been created to reflect the views of children across WA, from Broome to Albany, including Karratha.
To learn more about the project, please go to the following link: https://vimeo.com/99899678
These sound scapes are going to be exhibited at the 2Hot Festival for Young People at the Red Earth Arts Precinct from 21st June until 1st July 2019. To help bring the sound scapes to life, we are inviting children to design and make “feel boxes” and “peep boxes” to accompany each sound scape. These boxes will help bring the exhibition to life and provide both visual and tactile points of engagement for listeners.
