    Event description

    Have you noticed that the smells around you have changed? Do you miss the old smells or love the new ones?

    Aromas are everywhere. They affect us and the life around us in ways that can be challenging to describe. Changes in these aromas can have profound effects on how we feel physically and emotionally. Finding ways to understand, navigate and create smellscapes can help us feel more connected to the world around us.

    In this eco-sensory workshop, artists Tarsh Bates & Alanna Lynch invite you to notice smells produced by your environment, how they have changed or might change and how you feel about those changes. We will play with imagining and creating smellscapes and olfactory lexicons.

    Join us to explore tools for understanding how smell connects us with environments that are, will be no more, and are yet to come.
