We will be running our first ever event on Sunday 1 July between 2pm and 5pm, as part of the CINE East Festival.
Entitled Hackney Hear Plus1, this “mob” event will be an opportunity for visitors to use the app en masse, approaching a stranger in silence with a personalised invitation and sharing the experience of creating stories and rediscovering Hackney using sound.
It’s the first event of its kind and for those who are brave enough to approach a stranger, it should help show how perfect the Hackney Hear app is for shared listening experiences. We hope that by listening to some of the stories of Broadway Market and London Fields with other people (whom you don’t know) Hackney Hear will take on new meanings and provide users with new experiences.
If you’re interested in taking part in Hackney Hear Plus1 please email firstname.lastname@example.org or just show up on the day.
