Due to CAMH’s suspension of in-person public gatherings, a modified presentation of this art-making activity premiered online.
Inspired by DJ Screw and his influence on Houston’s music and culture, explore current exhibitions from home to complete a scavenger hunt for common sounds.
Below is our instructional guide for hosting our Family Day activity at home.
Find different places inside and outside your home where you can safely hear your surroundings.
02. LISTEN INSIDE
Stand in the first place of your choice inside your home and listen for any of the following sounds:
someone writing or drawing
a door opening or closing
the wind through a window
Move to a new place in your home. What can you hear now? Make a list of found sounds you remember hearing inside in the past to add to this list.
03. LISTEN OUTSIDE
Stand in the first place of your choice outside your home and listen for any of the following sounds:
train or light rail
the wind through tree branches
Move to a new place outside your home. What can you hear now? Make a list of sounds you remember hearing outside in the past to add to this list.
04. BONUS ROUND
Take a picture of what is making the sound you find and share your images.
