Integrated Voices Consultation Events, Bradford & London, 31 Jan & 7 February 2018

In October 2017, we held a series of consultation events in Bradford, London and Newcastle in order to gather views on how to make our new web resource, Integrated Voices, as useful as possible. We are now holding two more events in Bradford and London, where we’d particularly like to hear from voice-hearers from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and the families, friends and professionals who support them.

‘Company’ by Samuel Beckett, Chapel of the Holy Cross, Durham, 16 January – 20 January 2017

Hearing the Voice is delighted to announce that experiential audio performances of Samuel Beckett’s ‘Company’ will take place in the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Durham Cathedral from 16 to 20 January 2017.
Both moving and mysterious, Beckett’s Company is the story of a voice that comes ‘to one on his back in the dark’. This voice, which the protagonist can neither verify or name, ‘tells of a past’. In a performance of the text that is at the same time immersive and exploratory, the audience are invited to become the central character in this enigmatic story world.

Announcing the opening of ‘Hearing Voices: suffering, inspiration and the everyday’, Palace Green Library, Durham, 5 November 2016 – 26 February 2017

The exhibition is supported by a dedicated website containing images of the key displays, audio features, and interactive presentations.
