The Overhear mobile app geotags recordings of local poets and writers to partnering independent and cultural spaces during festivals.
Our aim is to engage festival goers and direct them to the best independent spaces for food, coffee, drinks and culture whilst also engaging regular visitors to those spaces by encouraging them to listen to local creating pieces specifically about the location they are in.
Overhear works best when writers and venues develop a relationship and get fully onboard with the ethos of Overhear as a community project.
