Sonic Postcards is concerned with the impact of sound on our lives and as with an ordinary picture postcard it offers the opportunity for people to exchange information about their local environments with a view to providing windows into a variety of other places, lives and cultures.
The project is aimed at young people aged between 9 and 14 years in Primary, Secondary and Special Schools and their teachers and is free to participating schools.
Sonic Postcards involves sound artists visiting your school over the course of a series of sessions and working with a single class of Key Stage 2 or Key Stage 3 pupils. If you would like to participate in the project, please contact Sonic Postcards Project Manager, Dan Stone.
All of the sound artists who facilitate our project are skilled workshop leaders with experience of running education projects in schools with young people. Sonic Postcards is run by Sonic Arts Network, the lead body for artists working with sound and technology in the UK. The project follows both good practice and government guidelines for working with young people.
