Audio Journeys to get you Wandering
With a generous Arts and Creativity Grant from the Northern Beaches Council Natasha Milne and Clara Luxford have produced four original audio stories set in and around the seaside town of Manly, available free from the Manly Insiders website.
Frustrated by travel restrictions during COVID the pair have found a unique and evocative way for people to explore places without leaving home.
“We wanted to create stories where fictional characters could share their experience of place, rather than just create an audio tour. And what better location to start than with Manly.” says Luxford.
Using Manly as a gateway to the Northern Beaches, the stories weave narrative, history, culture and myth into audio imaginings. From an Italian proxy bride to a young boy with big dreams, a difficult tour client or a woman lost in a post-911 world, these characters invite listeners to go with them on a journey of discovery and transcendence, as they navigate their way around this beguiling coastal village.
“It’s difficult to convey to people just how special the Northern Beaches is. And COVID was the perfect opportunity to bring the exceptional beauty of the peninsula to people everywhere.” Milne says.
“If you’re nearby, how great to just download a story, put on some walking shoes and explore Manly the way our characters do. But it doesn’t matter if you’re a local, a tourist or just hanging out in your armchair on the other side of the world, it’s an opportunity to discover what makes this part of the Australia so special.”
