Resident Echoes: Collective Voices (Visual Guide)
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 audio artwork with Sheffield based social architecture practice Studio Polpo and Conwy based sound artists Graham Hembrough and Carl Richardson.
Over three days the artists took up residence in locations across Llandudno and Mostyn to meet with visitors and local residents through a public programme of conversations, walks and workshops. Through these recorded gatherings, the artists have produced a sound archive which overlaps the collective voice of residents and visitors who took part in the residency, as they inhabit Llandudno’s public and community spaces.
Mostyn would like to thank all of the contributors Wendy, Keren, Steph, Joan, Matt, Felicity, Robert, Nigel, Steve, Eric, Jane, Graham, Judith, Agata, Natalia, Jeff, Paris, Richard J, David, Sam and Richard S. With thanks to Arts Council Wales for their continued support.
