Pre-workshop activity:

You are encouraged to record sounds in your surroundings, with the voice recording application on your mobile device. Some of the sounds that you can record are the sounds of nature, people in the neighbourhood or the sounds from activities at home, such as cooking. Each soundbite should feature a specific subject.

We would also like to encourage everyone to share with us their recorded sounds at the workshop!

About SoundscapeSG

SoundscapeSG is a crowdsourcing platform that encourages the community to contribute sounds from their daily lives and surroundings, integrating them into a sound map for archiving and preservation of Singapore’s sound heritage. We aim to archive sounds of the present for future generations to understand the intangible form of cultural heritage and identities over the years.

 

About Time of Your Life Celebration 2021

A narrative is a personal story that conveys who you are and the forces that shaped you. It can also be a powerful tool to frame events and make sense of changes that take place in your life. At this year’s Time of Your Life Celebration 2021, explore your personal narratives with us through talks and workshops. Try your hand at new skills and weave your narrative threads into different forms of artwork that expresses who you are.
