HearSay19  Essentials

HearSay19 - The 4th HearSay International Audio Festival takes place in the mountain village of Kilfinane, Co. Limerick, Ireland from 4pm Thursday 4th April to 2pm Sunday 4th April 2019.

 

There will also be a small number of special events for those who come early to Kilfinane in the week running up to the Festival. Attendees to the last Hearsay Festival in 2017 came from 35 countries and made the most of their trip to Ireland.

 

 

Cost to attend - A surprising answer.

HearSay19 is an experiment in building community.  We want HearSay to be as inclusive as possible.

 

If you are lucky enough to get to come to HearSay19, we will be asking you to

GIVE WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD FOR YOUR FESTIVAL PASS

 

Help ensure that the HearSay audio festival survives as a fiercely independent and unique festival by contributing based on what is possible for your pocket. Thanks to all the members of the HearSay Family who have made and will make donations so that HearSay19 and a bright future for HearSay is possible.

 

Your support will also help HearSay grow. We've got exciting plans for events and audio initatives beyond our Festival to keep the HearSay magic alive  through the year and beyond Kilfinane.

 

 

Become a contributor to HearSay19

Contributor Creative Residencies will run from Monday 1st April 2019 to Monday 8th April 2019 with a limited number of multi-week creative residences operating in the weeks leading up to the Festival.

 

At HearSay17, there were 90 events hosted by 65 contributors from all over the world in 19 different venues from living rooms to old churches. Contributors come from all audio disciplines from Audio Features to Film Sound, Sound Art to Podcasts.

 

We’ve been drawing up an incredible programme for HearSay17 and in 2017 for the first time ever, any person who attended either of the first two HearSay Festivals was given the opportunity to pitch an idea.  Contributor pitches for HearSay19 from previous attendees will open on 19th September 2018.
