Audio Monuments

Audio Monuments is a 4-part audio series installed throughout Santa Cruz. Some of the monuments are one day pop-ups, while others will be in their spaces for several months. However, all have an online presence here.

Each Audio Monument lifts up local histories and stories of our community members. Find an Audio Monument, listen, learn and share part of your story.
