Sun 13 Sep - Sat 31 OctFREE
Still, Here was commissioned by Chats Palace; presented in association with Shoreditch Town Hall as part of Hackney Carnival.
An audio exhibition across Hackney exploring learning disabled life in lockdown and beyond.
Discover a new side to Hackney’s streets in Access All Areas’ walking audio exhibition, Still, Here, launching on the day they would have opened and celebrated Hackney Carnival.
Walk the streets of the borough, and hear learning disabled and autistic artists share their experience of lockdown, their insights into life in Hackney, and their hopes for the ‘new normal’. Stop at key locations to hear reflections through spoken word, recorded conversations and found sound.
Still, Here is an invitation to stop, be still, and see through new eyes. It is a love letter to the places we have missed, a call to action to remember our neighbours and to consider our place in a post-lockdown world.
Dates: 13 September – 31 October 2020
Times: There is no set time as the route is self guided. The entire experience lasts approximately 90 minutes, with stops every 5-10 minutes. Choose to listen to one, a few or all the stops. We recommend experiencing Still, Here in the day time for maximum people watching, fresh air and lunch spots along the way.
Location: Various locations in Hackney, beginning at Hackney Town Hall and ending at Homerton Hospital
