Date: Wednesday, 19th December
Time: 3pm to 5pm
Location: G.A.S. Station
LIVERPOOL AND ST. HELENS PILOT
At 11am on 1 January 2019, all the public pay-phones in Liverpool and St. Helens will start to ring in unison. St. Helens currently has the highest suicide rates across England and Wales; 17.9 suicides per 100,000 people - nearly double the national average of 9.6 suicides per 100,000 people. Anyone who picks up one of the 593 phones in the area will experience a nine-minute interactive audio work designed to encourage us to think about our ability to listen in a world which is growing noisier by the day.
HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED FROM ANYWHERE IN THE UK
We invite anyone living outside of the Liverpool and St. Helens areas, but still in the UK, to nominate their local pay-phones in order to take part. You can do this by submitting the phone number for any UK public phone box HERE. Even if you don't plan on picking it up yourself, someone else might!
LONDON LAUNCH EVENT 19 DECEMBER
