The project “Soundscapes” invites pupils and teachers to explore their sonic environment, thus developing an attentiveness both to their surroundings and to themselves, as well as the ability to look at phenomena from an artistic and scientific perspective. This project is implemented as part of a larger project “Modernisation of the Cultural Education System” organised by the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania.
