Hannah Kemp-Welch is a sound artist with a social practice. She produces audio works in community settings, listening and making together. Works often discuss social issues, and involve the people most affected as project collaborators - gathering and sharing testimony and organising activist responses. Process and experimentation are central to each project. Hannah enjoys playing with sonic textures through recording and playback using tape, homemade radio devices or field recorders. Making audio technologies accessible is a key part of Hannah's work - zines and 'how-to's are often produced during projects.

Hannah has exhibited at Art Gene, Furtherfield, John Hansard Gallery, Kettle's Yard, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Nottingham Contemporary, Tate Britain and Tate Modern. She has also shown work internationally at Chinretsukan Gallery (Tokyo), FILE festival (São Paulo), Sound Reasons Festival (New Delhi) and TENT (Rotterdam).


Hannah is a member of feminist radio art group Shortwave Collective and arts cooperative Soundcamp. She is an Associate Lecturer at Central Saint Martins and London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, where she is also a PhD student with Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice (CRiSAP).
