PAGE GRADUALLY EVOLVING AS THE PROJECT PROGRESSES!

Background

You are invited to set sail on a sea voyage!

En voyage you will encounter ‘audio ghost ships‘ which sailed from where you are standing to the coast of Africa in the 17th and 18th centuries, loaded up with enslaved Africans and transported them across the Atlantic to the West Indies. These ships then sailed back to Bristol with the products of their labour (mainly sugar) to the immeasurable benefit of Bristol and indeed all of Europe.

To participate in this soundart experience you will need only your smartphone and, preferably, your headphones.

Supported by Arts Council England, University of the West of England Regional History Centre and the Bristol Cultural Development Partnership. LAUNCHING APRIL 2022
