Damun Sound Walk
May 2022, Inner West Council
The osmosis Damun Sound Walk took place across parks, streets, and passageways throughout the Inner West ward of Damun, an area that extends across Newtown, Camperdown, Enmore, Lewisham, and Stanmore. We invited our community to engage in an experience that lead participants through a series of site-specific audio created by sound artists and creative writers. Over the month of May 2022, we guided our audience through the experience via a smartphone-optimized website that hosted a map corresponding to a series of physical posters across the area – the series of sound works were experienced on-site through headphones or portable speakers.
osmosis acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal custodians of the land on which we listened to and experienced these sounds; we acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region. We acknowledge that Aboriginal communities and their Elders have been custodians of this country for many centuries; this is land upon which these people have performed age-old ceremonies. The traditional Aboriginal groups of this area are the Gadigal and Wangal people of the Eora Nation. We pay our respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
