The Conch [Sound Studio] by Walker & Bromwich is a travelling structure – part shell, part ark – that gathers the sound of people’s hopes and fears for the future, questing for a change in consciousness. The soundtrack gives voice to diverse opinions around the challenges that currently face society and the ways these might be overcome.

 

Commissioned by IOTA (Inverness Old Town Art) and the Highland Council, funded by Creative Scotland’s Rural Innovation Fund, The Conch has engaged with communities around the Highlands acting as a vessel for conversations. During this special event you can voice your own perspective.
