Viewing Opportunities 

Green Croft Arts- Collision and Conflict 

We are delighted that Green Croft Arts’ Collision & Conflict, a geolocated sound walk through the Northumberland landscape is live and available NOW.

For more information and to access Collision & Conflict: www.greencroftonthewall.com/collision-and-conflict

Using ECHOES: an interactive GPS - triggered sounds app, you follow a 2.5hr plotted sound walk, triggering artistic responses, connected to specific locations on the route; these sound responses make up an immersive geolocative experience that you can enjoy through your headphones.

In December 2020, Green Croft Arts commissioned 14 artists with strong links to Northumberland and Cumbria, to have a creative response to Hadrian’s Wall in song, music, sound, story, spoken word or poetry. As people walk through the landscape these artistic responses unfold as part of an immersive geolocative experience linking the responses to a specific location along the walk.

This project is made possible thanks to Arts Council England funded and is supported by The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre and Northumberland National Park.
