The Listening Post

The Listening Post is a collection of fascinating and varied stories of members from the local community.

Commissioned by Ideas Test, The Listening Post is a chance to hear about older people’s experiences of growing up, marrying, working and living in Sittingbourne, the sounds of the town developing and expanding as it engulfed the orchards, and working class life from 1970s up to right now.

The Listening Post captures the exciting and hugely varied voices of our local community through a series of intriguing recorded conversations, produced and edited by artist Jane Pitt with Daisy Orton. Initially an exhibition in 2018, you can now listen to the conversations using the player below.
