Program Description

About the Exhibition VOICING: Scholars and Scientists have long been captivated by the origins of human speech & language and how we convey emotion through the voice. VOICING presents three artists from three countries who explore the evolution, boundaries and emotional territories of the human voice from bird song through to digital code. 

About the WORSHOP: We are developing 3 different workshops connected to VOICING using littlebits technology. Students will use their inventor logs to work through and design new projects and ideas. We will post more complete information shortly. Thanks for your patience.

The workshops will be available for grades K - 12.
