Tender Ears Workshop

with Clare Breen

Friday 17 September 2021 |

Sounds surround us in our everyday lives: some come from our bodies, others from our surroundings or from sources that we never see. The Tender Ears workshop focuses on sound and listening, we will make playful sounds, draw in response to what we can hear and visit the exhibitions using our ears as well as our eyes. We will remember sounds we heard before and imagine new sounds that we haven’t yet heard.

The workshops are open to everyone. No prior musical background or experience is required and workshop is suitable for all ages. Children should be accompanied by adults.

These workshops will be delivered by Clare Breen with family pods of up to 6 people. This project was developed by Raluca Croitoru.
