BOOKING NOW! Playing With Sound

Thursday, February 24, 2022
2:00 pm-5:00 pm

Stanmer Park

Join Bela Emerson (Brighton & Hove Music for Connection) & Anne Colvin (dance artist, Imprint Creative) for an exciting, free creative session exploring interactions between movement and sound, using what we find in nature as inspiration.

This is a playful workshop space for curiosity and exploration – no previous experience or particular ability is needed.

The session forms part of Brighton & Hove Music for Connection’s Stanmer Sounds sessions, as part of Brighton & Hove City Council’s Stanmer Park Restoration Project.

What to expect

We’ll be creating spontaneous pieces together for our own enjoyment, in a beautiful space in the newly-restored Stanmer Park estate.

There have been lots of changes to the park during the Restoration Project, so this is a chance to get to know the park in a new way.

Stanmer Sounds attendee: ‘I really enjoyed the space to be playful with other people’.

Is this for me?

All adults and accompanied children are welcome to take part in the sessions. No music-making or particular movement experience is necessary, just an openness to take part and try new things.

All participants can contribute as they wish.

If you have any questions, please contact us to discuss.

Is this a course or a drop-in?

You can book just one session or sign up for others as they become available – it’s up to you. Each session is unique; please see the website for details of each one. Sessions are funded by Brighton & Hove City Council – they’re free, but places are limited, so if you book, please turn up!
