On Earth day, we are pleased to host a series of short, inspiring talks that will encourage communities to listen to their environment and appreciate our global connections. Through exceptional projects in the arts, research and conservation, our speakers will touch on how sound allows us to connect with and preserve our ocean biospheres. We will hear about Biosphere Soundscapes in Australia and the creative and documentary projects in acoustic ecology taking place in UNESCO recognized biospheres around the world. We will hear about the UNESCO recognized Átl’ka7tsem / Howe Sound Biosphere in Vancouver and the sound ecology of this ocean and Bowen Island, together with insights into creative sound projects and the aBIOTIC exhibition.

This program of Talks observes Earth Month, offers a response to ZOOVEILLANCE and launches our upcoming Field Recording: Bowen Island workshop, April 20/21.
