Self guided immersive sound work by Tais Rose Wae

Tais Rose Wae by Zali Rae

Connect with the Rail Trail and Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre by immersing yourself in the sound work of poet Tais Rose Wae.

The recorded poetry piece enacts as an invitation to slow down, engage in a meditative deep-listening to the land, and open yourself up to the beautiful surroundings. It asks of the listener, ‘How can you breathe this air and give thanks just by doing so? How can your time here be a love letter to Country?’

This is a free self-guided activity and is suitable for groups and individuals of all ages.

Activate the sound work using the link below. Listen to it while you are on the path joining the Rail Trail to the Gallery. The path can be found near the Margaret Olley Memorial Garden.

Note: the activity involves audio that can be listened to on your phone via headphones or speaker.
