Justin Wiggan's Listening Passport

We all have unique sounds in our own homes, ones which may have surrounded us for years. But how many have we really took time to pause and value? How many contribute to our own happiness? What about sounds we have never noticed before prior to the lockdown. In this unique situation we now have time to be sonic detectives in our own homes.

The Listening Passport will allow for immersive and reflective listening to the isolated environment, helping to gather assets and the responses from this will allow sound artist Justin Wiggan to produced a national sound map of listening life under isolation, this sound piece will then be shared on all platforms and broadcasted on radio .

A unique, massive artist and public collaboration which will become a historic document for the future.

Arts Council England - Art Activity Packs

Arts Council England value the importance of creativity for children, which needs to be nurtured now more than ever. This is why, thanks to support from the National Lottery, they’ve been distributing art activity packs to 25,000 children and young people across the country.

The Let’s Create packs are aimed at primary and secondary school-aged children who are currently most in need of support, and contain easy-to-follow creative activities developed in partnership with  2018 Global Teacher Prize winner, Andria Zafirakou. 

Plymouth Arts Cinema - Sofa Cinema: Bait 

Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin (Edward Rowe) is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his harbour village. The summer season brings simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers to boiling point, with tragic consequences.
Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Mark Jenkin’s Bait is a timely and funny, yet poignant new film that gets to the heart of a community facing up to unwelcome change.

Join Plymouth Arts Cinema for their Sofa Cinema where you can watch this award winning local film and chat about it with fellow film-goers on their Facebook page after the event.
