Departing from the Vancouver Public Library – Central Branch Atrium (350 W. Georgia Street, inside the main building entrance)

MEH: The Museum of Extratemporal Harkening is an experimental soundwalk that blends real-world exploration together with scripted audio fiction, soundscape composition, and elements of game play. Conceived and created by Helena Krobath and Brady Marks, it also features fiction by speculative author Tash McAdam.

We invite guests to experience the story and fictional museum together, while moving at their own pace through the architectures and sounds of Vancouver Public Library.
