Audio postcards from seven artists in their neighbourhoods co-curated by Fiona Hallinan and Nora Hickey M’Sichili

Déambulations is an audio walk series launched by CCI in March 2021. One of the quiet consequences of restricted movement this last year has been a shift in our perceptions of the perimeters of place, locality and home. These moments of 'staying put' have brought heightened awareness of seasonality, the behavioural patterns of neighbours, biodiversity, multi-species throughways, soundscapes, accessibility and public amenities as well as natural and built environments.

Seven artists from different approaches and practices have been invited to create audio routes through their local neighbourhoods in different European cities.

Listen again to the launch night of the Thursday 4 March
To launch Déambulations: keeping the ground of our being, Fiona Hallinan will introduce the project with a talk on the form of audio guided journeys. This will be followed by a panel discussion with the seven invited artists moderated by Hallinan and CCI director Nora Hickey M'Sichilli.
The title keeping the ground of our being comes from the work of author Gloria E Anzaldua.

Premiere of each walk on Saturday afternoons at 3pm Frenchtime / 2pm Irishtime: 6 March to 17 April
