May 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$5
As part of unique Soundcamp Weekend at Stave Hill Ecology Park – InspiralLondon are delighted to be conducting an opening walk threading from the heart of South London along the Thames to the Redriffe (Rotherhithe) peninsula. Time and Start is confirmed – Saturday 4 May 2019 – leaving from London Bridge RECEPTION at 11 am to arrive at Stave Hill camp around 12.30pm for Lunch by Leon, and following this for opening of Soundcamp events – Platform’s The Tent That Can Hear.
Station RECEPTION is to be found outside the main station on St Thomas Street opposite juction with Weston Street. If you are coming out of station take the exit to your left towards St Guys Hospital which takes you onto St Thomas Street and then turn left again so you are walking East towards Bermondsey Street. You will see us waiting outside station on Street in yellow bib and with a sign. The Reception is the last part of Station you can enter from street along St Thomas Street. Otherwise just find on map where Weston Street hits St Thomas Street and we will be there from 10.45 am.
There we will encounter Sounds Interrupted (Jessie Brennan, 25 April – 10 May): a live audio stream transmitted from a container roof at Stave Hill Ecological Park in Rotherhithe – is played out from time to time on an array of speakers by the Reception at London Bridge Station. We are delighted that Jessie will be joining us for the walk and can give us an update on the sound streams.
During the weekend of Soundcamp, Reveil 6 makes a 24 hour loop of the earth at sunrise, relaying live sounds from a global network of soundcamps & streamers; as part of celebration of International Dawn Chorus Day.
InspiralLondon will take us on a walk that introduces you to the history, future past and future present of urban ecology, and explore something of our desires and needs to create sustainable cities.
If you are not planning on joining Soundcamp for whole weekend this walk provides an ideal introduction to urban ecology/sound ecology and the recent history of the area. (Book here just for the walk)
