Resident Echoes: Collective Voices Residency
How do our neighbouring communities feel about the area they live in? What are the places that local residents feel connected to around Llandudno? How can Mostyn create a space where communities can feel at home in the gallery?
In response to these questions, Mostyn presents Resident Echoes, a new collaborative project with Sheffield based social architecture practice Studio Polpo and Conwy based sound artists Graham Hembrough and Carl Richardson.
Over three days the artists will take up residence in locations across Llandudno and within the gallery to meet with communities and the wider public. Through these recorded gatherings, the artists will produce new sound works which will present a portrait of the town through the collective voices in these public spaces.
These new works will be presented in the Mostyn Project Space in 2023, both online and within the newly transformed Mostyn Project Space, a place where our communities and the wider public can come together and encounter our programmes in alternative and new ways.
Friday, 25 November 2022 – Llandudno Town Centre: Walk and Talk
Inspired by the approach of ConwyMIND, an independent charity to support better mental health and wellbeing to people across Conwy County, this Walk and Talk is an invitation to explore the town and share memories of places that have special meaning to local residents. The Walk and Talk will record the journey, through the conversations, the movements and the sound of the elements that surround us on the way.
Participants in this event are invited to propose locations in the town centre they would like to share in advance. Please be aware that this event involves walking outdoors and we advise you to wear waterproof and warm clothing and footwear. The route of this Walk and Talk will be shared with ticket holders on the 22 November ahead of the event.
You are welcome to join and leave at whatever point you feel comfortable. If you have any additional access needs please speak to us on 01492 879201 or write to us at [email protected].
