The seminar Sound at the Museum was arranged by Struer Museum and CAVI. 16th of June 2022 professionals gathered in Struer museum to share new insights in the use of sound at museums, as well as experience the newly opened soundinstallation in the Buchholtz villa created by CAVI in collaboration with the museum as part of the research projekt: Soundcapes in Authentic Buildings supported by Velux Foundations.

The program presented the SIAB project - Soundscapes in authentic buildings - supported by the Velux Foundation, both the design process led by CAVI, Aarhus University, and the focus of Struer Museum, Museum Skanderborg and Museum Midtjylland on the development of permanent soundscapes representing the sounds of the past in historic buildings.
