Rebellious Sounds Archive: Listening Booth Tour
26th November 2018 @ 9:00 am - 8th December 2018 @ 3:00 pm
A mobile listening booth built like a voting booth will tour the South West in 2018 to museums and locations to gather and share contemporary stories of women’s activism, whilst also looking back 100 years to discover local stories and connections to the women’s suffrage campaign.
Dreadnought South West have commissioned the design and build of a very special mobile exhibition space. Known as the Listening Booth, it is deliberately designed to look like a voting booth to remind users of the centenary of the right to vote for some women. Excerpts from the oral histories collected for the Rebellious Sounds Archive have been loaded on to interactive voting cards. Listeners put on a pair of headphones and choose a voting card to place in the slot; this will play their chosen story of women’s activism.
This installation accompanies Juliet Middleton-Batts | Heroes, an exhibition which pays homage to the dedication and sacrifice of each individual campaigner and the collective impact achieved by the Suffragette movement.
