Listening to Our City

Our Work | August 4, 2023

Tricky Hat and The Poverty Truth Community present Listening to Our City

Listening to Our City reveals hidden, powerful stories told by New Scots voices, living in Glasgow.

When people seeking safety come to Scotland, they bring with them a wealth of new ideas, cultures and creativity. Working in partnership with The Poverty Truth Community and Women’s Integration Network, participants and artists have worked together over a series of workshops from October 22 to March 23 to explore, create and record stories.

These women have shared their stories, humour, hopes and dreams.  We invite you to listen with us to their poignant and beautiful insights that you can now experience as a short immersive sound walk.

This sound walk is hosted on a geolocated sound app that you can download from your preferred app store. 

Take a pair of earphones and your smartphone turn on your GPS and follow the short route.

You can also listen to the sound scapes here, on Soundcloud

This pilot project was made possible by funding from The Poverty Truth Community, Glasgow Arts Development Fund and The Roberston Trust.

With thanks to everyone who shared their stories.

We are planning to develop this project and open it up to other groups of people.  If you want to take some time out and take part in relaxed, positive get to togethers, share stories, learn and create. You’ll work together alongside Tricky Hat artists and creators to share your dreams and visions. These unique workshops give you the chance to work with movement and dance artists, music, sound and performance. We’ll create a new interactive audio walk that takes people on a journey around the city and to places that are meaningful to you.  If you or your organisation are interested in taking part please contact
