Ever wanted to see, hold, hug your own voice? To experiment with how the collective voice of your City might sound?

PROJECT VEAR is a research mission. It is an exploration. It is searching for a way to harness the power of the collective voice.

We are inviting people from across the city to assist in our search for the ‘Essence de Voix’ -  the undefinable element that lifts voice beyond just sound.

In Oxford Castle and Prison a site haunted by a history of silencing voices, Project VEAR brings voices from across the city together as the ultimate antidote… Voice Park.

A playground for the senses.

Look out for VEARO’s (Voice Extraction And Rediffussion Operators) on the streets of Oxford 8-11th November or join us at Voice Park at Oxford Castle and Prison:


16 & 17 Nov 2018
The event will be filmed and photographed on Friday 16th Nov. Because of the nature of the event, it is difficult to accommodate requests to not be filmed or photographed. However, if you don’t wish to be filmed or photographed please speak to a member of staff (at the event) or email victoria@ocmevents.org (in advance). Thank you.
Project VEAR was commissioned and produced for Oxford's Christmas Light Festival 2018 by Oxford Contemporary Music and supported by an Oxford Christmas Light Festival Partnership Grant. It was originally produced as part of Land of Green Ginger for Absolutely Cultured (Hull City of Culture 2017).
