Hear, Here is a pop-up picnic radio station that reveals new perspectives of place to the listener, thematically inspired by the water, land and stories of the site on which it is created.
Like a site specific podcast series where the collection of stories, perspectives and expertise from the natural and urban landscapes are gathered and shared with the community.
“Listen from the water, listen under a tree, listen from the bamboo grove, a birds nest or as you sunbathe on your towel. Hear, Here is a pop-up picnic radio made specifically for listening in the Enoggera landscape, but that will also collect stories, ideas and expertise from upstream and downstream. Each day you can join artists Dan and Dan as they talk with people who know more than they do, so that they may map and uncover some of the hidden stories of this landscape.”
Creative Team includes: Lead Artist: Daniele Constance; Collaborating Artist: Dan Koop; Sound Editing and Recording: Daniele Constance; Sound and Technical Support: Joseph Burgess; Design: Jorge Serra
