The just released A&H Podcast, Episode 5: Reactivating Sounds of Blackness is a soundscape created by Vanley Burke and Gary Stewart, in collaboration with Red Earth Collective

This work includes recordings of interviews by Burke, as well as everyday sounds and intangible heritage from his local area, commissioned as part of A&H’s Meeting Point programme with Museum X, a project to create Britain’s first museum celebrating Black British history, art and culture. 

Originally broadcast live in Handsworth Park, Birmingham April 2023, this podcast features the artwork, followed by a conversation between Vanley Burke and Gary Stewart.
