About the event
Arts Front are supporting this event through a public live stream for the symposium panels and presentations which are taking place on Thursday and Friday, December 7 and 8. Perspectives on Listening brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers to explore the role of sound in understanding place and environmental changes.

“Perspectives on Listening” will introduce the interdisciplinary possibilities of acoustic ecology and highlight emerging fields including ecoacoustics. The event features keynotes from Steven Feld (USA) and Monica Gagliano in addition to panels, research presentations, live performances, immersive installations, sound walks and field trips across the rainforests of the Sunshine Coast and aquatic ecosystems in Noosa Biosphere Reserve. ​
