Join artist Savinder Bual in exploring the importance of deep listening, as you make your own instruments out of pipes and free reeds. Thereby adding your own ‘voice’ to the ‘Free Reed’ project.

Savinder’s work explores narratives around inclusivity and societal structures in a playful and engaging way, that is open to dialogue and discourse. Savinder is known to Bristol Beacon audiences for her Pineapple Orchestra Project in 2018, a commission which used instruments made from pineapples tops to ask difficult questions around colonialism and contested histories.

Refreshments will be provided to all participants.
