Each year in September, people gather on Lenapehoking – the ancestral territory of the Lenape people – to attend the New York Climate Week. But this year was quite special… Are you curious to hear more from people turning the tides for climate justice?
When ambient electronic music meets spoken word…
I wrote this poem at the international symposium on soundscape in Lugano, Switzerland, in October 2023. The theme was looking at how sound creations and listening practices can help us shape better futures for human and more-than-human life.
The musical accompaniment was a spontaneous creation offered by my friend Squiff Eye, photographer, graphic designer and sound producer. Listen here for more spoken word tracks.
I’m Louise. I trained as an anthropologist in Germany, Canada and Denmark. I have been actively campaigning for Indigenous rights and climate justice these past years. In 2023, I took a deep dive into the production of immersive sound journeys which I’m releasing as a podcast show: Circle of Voices.
When I am not traveling, I live on the edge of a small community woodland in Stroud (South West England). I also love to dance and to perform spoken word.
IMMERSIVE SOUND JOURNEYS
Exploring sound activism and multispecies storytelling
Circle of Voices is a podcast bringing together authentic stories from the frontlines of climate action, sounds from nature and atmospheric recordings.
I am thrilled to join the 2024 cohort of the Bio-Leadership Fellowship, a 9 months programme and a community of practice designed to work like nature.
I have been invited to join Earth Decides, a community of world experts, scientists, influencers and creatives brought together by the Center for Nature and Climate at the World Economic Forum.
