Hear Our Voice!

Come on a camping adventure in a multi-sensory musical performance developed collaboratively with children on the autistic spectrum.

Phillida Eves, Michael Chang and Neasa Ní Chuanaigh take you on an enticing journey with live music and multi-sensory fun as we camp under the stars and meet woodland creatures on the way.

'Hear Our Voice!' is designed specifically for a small audience of 6 children on the autistic spectrum and their educators and families.

Come on a camping adventure in the woods and share wild food with an unexpected guest. Get warm and cosy around the campfire and fall asleep under a canopy of beautiful stars and a full moon. Wake to a rousing dawn chorus of birds and frogs and explore all the elements of nature.

It’s a delightful opportunity to share live music, and multi-sensory experiences on a camping trip together as a very intimate audience.

'Hear Our Voice!' has been developed in partnership with Galway Autism Partnership with funding from Small Towns, Big Ideas as part of Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture.
