What you'll do

Some say the city is noisy, but what happens when you don headphones, carry a small audio recorder, and crank up the sound? The whole place becomes a spectacular world of found music. We will take a sonic nature walk over the Brooklyn Bridge, through Brooklyn Heights, over the brand new Squibb footbridge, down to the scenic Brooklyn Bridge Park with fabulous views of Manhattan, then into historic Dumbo underneath two giant bridges, with truly incredible sounds. The exact path may vary, but wherever we go, it will be a three-hour walk that presents the city in a way you’ve never heard before. Bring your headphones and walk away from this unique experience with a newfound appreciation of the city.

About the organisation

The Art Bus Project Inc.

The Art Bus Project is a nonprofit organization and mobile exhibit dedicated to public access to art and a creative agenda. Housed in a repurposed school bus, it's a traveling showcase bringing artists' work to eight American towns. At each stop, we'll host workshops designed to foster imaginative thought and action, inviting the public on board to experience art, meet artists, and get inspired.

This is a social impact experience where 100% of what you pay for this experience goes to The Art Bus Project Inc..

Where you'll be

We'll start at City Hall, and walk over the Brooklyn Bridge—listening carefully. On the Brooklyn side, we'll wander through pristine Brooklyn Heights, then over a brand new intricate footbridge to the park under the bridge, then into Dumbo where you are free to eat, drink, and do your own thing.
