For the month of March, NAISA's installation space will be filled with new selection of everyday objects especially selected for the interesting sounds they make when struck or played, offering you a chance to play with sound and manipulate it live. Open every Saturday in March, 10am - 2pm or by appointment with added times during the March Break Fun Fair.

NAISA will also include a series of concerts by Toronto sound artists who will be performing using the NAISA Sound Bash installation as part of the NAISA Sound Bash Concert Series.
