Overhear is about location and creative content. It uses mobile technology to link the two generating a micro-economy for poets. Here’s how it works:
A recording of a local poet is “geo-tagged” to an independent business in Birmingham,
When a user arrives at that location they can “unlock” the recording and play it through the app.
It’s pretty simple but it has the potential to generate great value for independent places in the city through user's footfall. It is our mission to harness that value and use it to pay poets and creatives a fair fee for producing new and exciting work.
