Listening Booth Tour

Dreadnought South West have commissioned the design and build of a very special mobile exhibition space. Known as the Listening Booth, it is deliberately designed to look like a voting booth to remind users of the centenary of the right to vote for some women. Excerpts from the oral histories collected for the Rebellious Sounds Archive have been loaded on to interactive voting cards. Listeners put on a pair of headphones and choose a voting card to place in the slot; this will play their chosen story of women's activism.
