Sound and the Heritage Experience

Please find attached details of the I Hear Too research network and our first research workshop in York.

The focus of the day will be to consider the general role of audio and acoustics in heritage and will include presentations from academic researchers, artists and industry stakeholders, bringing their varying perspectives on the role of sound and acoustics in their own definition, understanding and interaction with heritage.

Please do feel free to pass on these details to colleagues and friends
with an interest in this area.
