What can you hear if you stop for a moment, look and listen with fresh eyes and ears? What does sound tell us about space, experience, daily life? Can you hear a teaspoon in a cup? The sea? Traffic? How does gently moving light change our environment throughout the day? Amy Cunningham invites you to join a workshop in which, together with others, you will find experimental ways of recording using your own digital camera or phone, or through drawing.
During the workshop you will create the components of a collaborative audio visual ‘postcard’* to send to the outside world. After the workshop ends, you are invited to send your recordings, images and drawings to Amy who will create the final ‘postcard’, made available online and then sent back to you at home.

Sound & Light is part of Care and Citizenship, a lively series of events looking at varied approaches to care and active citizenship. These online talks, workshops and events invite us to find new ways to act with care in our own lives, collaborating with those around us to create a more equitable society.
*The audio visual postcard is a contemporary version of the ‘sound postcard’ popular in the 1900’s which was a convenient way to send an image with music or personal recorded message to loved ones.
The strength of community-led response and activism in relation to COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter has led DLWP to ask how it can better support this work. Beginning in Spring 2021, the De La Warr Pavilion are holding a lively series of events that will connect people, groups and places, encouraging learning and knowledge sharing between organisations and publics.
Each event has been co-devised with organisations, artists and individuals committed to creating social change. These include Transition Town Hastings,The Refugee Buddy Project: Hastings, Rother and Wealden as well as actor, writer and artist Anna-Maria Nabirye and artist Amy Cunningham amongst others. Examining varied approaches to care and active citizenship, these online talks, workshops and events invite us to find new ways to act with care in our own lives, collaborating with those around us to create a more equitable society.
