soundSPORT was part of Igniting Ambition, a Cultural Olympiad programme in the East Midlands which invested in projects and people that took the London 2012 Games as their inspiration to create once-in-a-lifetime cultural opportunities for audiences and communities. Igniting Ambition is funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to create a cultural and sporting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the European Regional Development Fund and the East Midlands Development Agency with the support of Arts Council England and many others.
Being part of London 2012 is a once in a life-time opportunity, and soundSPORT was officially recognized as part of the UK Cultural Olympiad through its Inspire Programme.
In partnership with Lincolnshire Sports Partnership, soundSPORT delivered music events and activities throughout Lincolnshire and to a diverse range of participants. Inspired by the sense of celebration and carnival at key sporting events we created a unique activity involving the spectacle of a 14’ high metal ‘sound sculpture’. These events took place at various sporting events across Lincolnshire during the summer of 2011.
