July 18-July 31. 15 days

In this course, you will be introduced and have the opportunity to create an audio walk together with others that will be shown during the festival weekend at Nordiskt Ljus. The audio walk has an inherent potential to make us listen, see and move in the world in new ways. Through workshops, lectures and their own creation, the participants will receive methods, tools and practical tools. Together we will examine the relationship between sound, text and place. Based on the performing arts' knowledge of the situation and the audience, discussions about the potential of the audio walk as a form in the borderland between fiction and the environment are encouraged. Based on the participants' specific areas and interests, we hope that the course will offer inspiration and knowledge to create new works.

Previous knowledge: The course is aimed at those who have some form of artistic practice and are suitable for those who have not previously worked with audio walks.
