Hello!

Thank you for supporting OVERHEAR! 

OVERHEAR is an app based Hyper-local Poetry map! You can unlock unique recordings from local Birmingham poets and add them to a streamable playlist in the OVERHEAR app by visiting specific locations in Birmingham.
You can use OVERHEAR to discover not only your city but also its poets!
The idea came about as we were miffed about taking really good content and throwing it into the BIG BLACK HOLE that is the internet for no one to find.

So we have teamed up with Birmingham's best independents to provide a new way for poets to access free recording sessions that we then geotag to the spaces that we think you should visit!

You should definitely go and visit them, collect the poems and help the local independent poetry scene and business economy!

The PLAN:
  • GENERATE A LARGE BIRMINGHAM BASED FOLLOWING.
  • ATTRACT BUSINESS, FUNDING AND OPPORTUNITIES WITH THAT FOLLOWING (AND THEIR FOOTFALL.)
  • SELL SPACES ON THE OVERHEAR MAP TO THOSE BUSINESSES AND LET OUR FOLLOWERS KNOW THEY ARE SUPPORTING THE BIRMINGHAM POETY SCENE BY HOSTING A UNIQUE RECORDING.
  • PAY OUR POETS FOR THEIR CONTENT.


Goals
$0 of $105 per month
We can pay a poet! 
Currently everything being done at Overhear is done for free, the cost of materials is minimal but comes out of personal funds.
Our app developer is even working just because he likes the idea.
So this frees us up to pay our poets first!
We're starting off by paying £75 ($105) per recording and will hope to increase that in the future.
