Designing an Experiential Exhibition for Raising Public Awareness of Cultural Sounds to Safeguard Sonic Intangible Cultural Heritage Values

Pınar Yelmi and Sertaç Kakı
Abstract—This paper outlines an experiential exhibition that intends to increase public awareness of cultural sounds of Is-tanbul. Since intangible cultural heritage (ICH) elements can only be safeguarded within society, it is necessary that the soci-ety is aware of cultural values and conscious about protecting them. In order to raise public awareness of sonic cultural val-ues, we designed an exhibition to emphasize the cultural signif-icance of urban sounds through sonic experiences. The exhibi-tion is shaped by experience design, as experience is one of the most powerful ways of conveying a message. Moreover, the exhibition consists of only sounds and texts, but no visuals in order to draw attention on urban sounds and to keep visitors focused on thinking about these cultural values. This experien-tial exhibition leads to a raise in public awareness of urban sounds, which hopefully triggers protecting cultural values voluntarily and help turning the action of collecting and ar-chiving urban sounds into a collaborative work.

Index Terms—Experience design, experiential exhibition, auditory experience, intangible cultural heritage, sonic values.
