Past Event


This event was on Saturday 20 July, participatory performance 6-7pm, sound installation 7-10pm

Participants of all ages are invited to join Emma Smith in counting down to the opening of Calling Time, a sound installation at Whitechapel Bell Foundry, by transforming Brick Lane into a human water clock and enacting the passage of time between people down the street. The installation brings together sounds of bells from around the world in a unique change ringing score that allows bells made at the foundry over its 447 year history to ring together.
