Over the next two weekends Pete Ashton is leading a series of walks across Digbeth designed to explore the streets with your camera and your ears.
He will be working with sound artists and musicians on three of the walks: The first is SOUNDkitchen who recently ran a listening walk around Edgbaston Reservoir for Still Walking. Pete will also be joined by experimental musician Sam Underwood, artist in residence at Town Hall Symphony Hall and part of If Wet – nights of sonic exploration based in a village hall in rural Worcestershire.
They will provide aural stimulation and help you listen closely to your surroundings as you photograph the city.
The fourth walk will be using touch; seeing how how the city feels, from the texture of the brickwork to the smoothness of the metal signage, and feeding that into your photography.
Each walk costs a fiver. More information can be found here.
