Swallow Walk is an audio-guided experience of Edwardes Lake in Reservoir, inspired by the lake’s surrounding environment and its migratory birds including the Welcome Swallows that flit over the lake, especially at springtime.
Wearing headphones connected to your personal device, enter a contemplative space as you are lead by a multilayered and poetic sound track featuring the sublime vocals of Ria Soemardjo and text by Sandra Fiona Long.
Swallow Walk wishes to acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung people who are the Traditional Owners and custodians of this land, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and aim to tread gently on this land.
Swallow Walk was commissioned and funded by Darebin Arts for HYPERLOCAL – a new series of immersive art works that invites audiences to see Darebin differently. Presented by FUSE Darebin.
