Literary Exchanges

Hear My Voice organizes and facilitates literary/cultural exchanges between South Africa and other countries. We bring international visiting artists to South Africa and send South African artists abroad to perform, host and attend workshops, jam sessions, master classes, school outreaches and more. The selected participants are also encouraged to network, learn, collaborate and share ideas. Countries that have been respresented in our Exchanges so far have included, Sweden and the USA.
