THE LISTENING PROJECT
Creative listening, recording and broadcasting by people with learning disabilities
Co-created with a dedicated team whose members have a learning disability the listening project mixes listening, recording and production of radio and sound art.
Creating programmes about the team and their friends' experience of life in Wolverhampton, the project has produced a dozen or more programmes broadcast on WCR 101.8 FM.
More recently the team has begun to explore deep listening and how sound can be a medium to creatively interpret important aspects of our lives. We have just embarked on our Sounds of the City project, a sound survey of Wolverhampton from our team's unique perspective.
