Soundwalking in Bairro do Rego

Read in English, Portuguese

Placemaking Event


29 September 2022


Lisbon (Portugal)


20 September 2022



Soundwalking is an artistic practice that links the act of listening to an experience of place and space, following a specifically designed path. Through the ECHOES* app, this route will be pre-determined and geo-located, so that the listener can dive into the experience and explore the sounds and spaces of Bairro do Rego.


On the 29th of September at 18h, we will take a soundwalk through Bairro do Rego, accompanied by the young people who participated in the creation of the sound pieces, where we can share experiences and “listen” to the places in the neighbourhood. After the tour, we will return to the Passa Sabi association for a get-together where we will screen the videos resulting from the entire creation process.


This event is the culmination of several soundscaping sessions in the neighbourhood. All of the pieces from the soundwalk were collaboratively made by the neighbourhood youth guided by the musician and composer João Dias Ferreira, who produced them.


The soundwalk, as a sonic public artwork, will stay available to everyone interested, from neighbourhood residents to passers-by, after its launch on the 29th of September.


*To participate in this collective sound experience, download the ECHOES app and bring some headphones.
