SONIC WATERLOO is a festival that presents activities around the subject of sound. It connects sound art and location and reinforces cultural networks in the Waterloo area.

The festival will provide a unique experience through its use of materials and ideas not explored in any previous events. The festival will spread its activities into the public domain and other surrounding spaces.

Through a series of participatory outdoor and indoor events it will provide exclusive learning opportunities, facilitating new ideas about sound arts and other disciplines.
