The Loiterers Resistance Movement

June 2021 First Sunday Sound Walk

It's First Sunday, This Sunday and time for some more wandering together, apart. I am really delighted that this month’s Loiter is being facilitated by Markus Hetheier who will be taking us on a soundwalk. I’ll let Markus tell you more:

“Join me for a remote soundwalk this Sunday at 2 pm. The soundwalk will be conducted via Whatsapp. It will contain taking spontaneous routes and recording any sounds that sound interesting to you via the voice note function on Whatsapp and directly share with the others in the group. After the soundwalk everyone is asked to draw a soundmap, a representation of which sounds you encountered during your soundwalk, as a reflective practice to conclude the walk. These maps can be shared via Whatsapp.”

The soundwalk will start 2pm BST on Sunday 6th June. You can take part wherever you are at whatever speed / to whatever extent you wish but please take care of yourself and the people and places you wander with.

To join the live whatsapp chat please text / whatsapp me on 07974929589 by 12 noon on Sunday.
I will also be tweeting instructions and key points @thelrm #Loiter

There will be a zoom chat at 4pm BST on Sunday to share observations and have a chat about whatever else you fancy – here are the joining details

Time: Jun 6, 2021 04:00 PM London

Meeting ID: 919 8892 1967  Passcode: 2wS^1$DY

As ever First Sunday is free for anyone and everyone and I welcome ideas for future walks. There are a few other events coming up in June and hopefully an in person walk soon as well – more details soon

With love and golden apples
