The basis of this innovative proposal is to create a sound album of the Six-Mile Water river using field recording, photography and words to “explore life and biodiversity along the Six Mile Water and Lough Neagh shoreline”. It will be overseen by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and the Six Mile Water Trust will be the main partner. Four recording workshops will take place over a 2 year period in 2017 and 2018. Sixty people will be trained and a webpage will be set up following the workshops. The project will raise awareness to a new audience on the importance of wetlands, rivers and loughs. The main outcomes will include the learning of new natural interpretation skills and a greater understanding of our wetlands and the interactions between aquatic plants and animals. The sound recordings and images will be available for future projects.
