Out Hear is based on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri people. Their sovereignty is acknowledged and respect is paid to their Elders past, present and future, and to Indigenous communities around Australia. 

Music & Sound Facilitation

Providing new opportunities for expression and connection in the community through personalised and accessible music and sound recording services. All abilities welcome!

Create + Connect

Out Hear amplifies the vital and diverse voices in the community offering opportunities to develop, publish and share audio work. It is an invitation for individuals, organisations and the broader community to connect, to listen and be heard.

Mentoring and facilitation is tailored to individuals’ interests and ambitions. Programs may be in partnership with other organisations or directly with individuals, including NDIS funded participants.




Out Hear at Merri-bek City Band – Free Sessions

A group of 17 people are gathered for a photo. A couple of people are in wheelchairs and the others are standing. Most people are smiling. One person has two thumbs up. They are in a brightly decorated gallery surrounded by paintings and artworks. The people in the photo are artists and staff of Arts Access Victoria's Art Day South inclusive studio program and they have gathered for the opening of an exhibition in 2018.
