What we do


We connect people to quiet through workshops, tranquility trails, soundwalks, online projects and audio products for charities, community groups and businesses.

quiet space

We work with local people and partner organisations to encourage access to quiet spaces through soundwalks, mapping, workshops and certification.


We deliver arts and wellbeing workshops in schools, colleges, universities and non-formal educational settings that explore our connection with silence and quiet space.


I just want to thank you for your field recording workshop, I really enjoyed it and would have loved to have spent more time with you for the editing process....It made me think about sound in a different way and prove very useful for my final degree show.”
