Edgeland: An audio journey

01 November - 20 March
Organized by: Barbican
Venue: Barbican
Silk Street

Roam the Barbican foyers using headphones to experience this free audio journey, which reframes the sounds and sights of the iconic arts centre.



In the company of elusive characters and their fantastic sound worlds, you’re invited to explore, examine, and reimagine the edgelands of the Barbican, seeking out the extraordinary inside a building famed for its radical design and ambition. Leave day-to-day at the door, and you’ll discover an architecture of other spaces, resounding with the echoes of its Utopian foundations. 

Start your journey by downloading the Edgelands app onto your smartphone or tablet. Alternatively, borrow a device and headphones from the Barbican Shop.



About your journeyThe duration is between 30-90 minutes, depending on your choices. Edgelands is free and there is no need to book. As long as the Centre is open, you can begin your journey. 



There’s no set path to your journey – you’re free to explore – but if you have any access requirements there is an option avoiding stairs. Please contact our Box Office staff if you would like to discuss any specific access requirements.
