TWEET YOUR STREET
Interact live with the installation by tweeting about a bird name from Blackbird Leys or Greater Leys streets #ChirpDriftOxford
This new online edition of Chirp & Drift premieres for Oxford’s Christmas Lights Festival with a special focus on Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys, taking inspiration from the many streets that are named after birds. You can interact with the LIVE STREAM of Chirp & Drift by tweeting about one of the birds from the street names of Blackbird Leys and Greater Leys using the hashtag #ChirpDriftOxford
You could Tweet about your favourite street, or when you last saw that bird, or a short poem – just don’t forget to use the bird name and #ChirpDriftOxford
As if by magic, your Tweet will trigger the special music for that bird, with your tweet – as part of the live interactive LIVE STREAM on 20 & 21 November from 4:30 – 8pm.
Poems generated in a workshop will also be included during the live stream, between tweets.
If you want to join in the Twitter interaction but don’t live in Blackbird Leys of Greater Leys Oxford – then be inspired by the road names there, which feature these birds. For inspiration – check out our workshop resources page here. #ChirpDriftOxford
