"The (Not) Listening Project" promotional graphic


Sam Gonçalves

Every day, 24 hours


The (Not) Listening Project seeks people who have not had the opportunity to say something that is important to them. The limited podcast run draws on the NEoN’s theme REACT to seek out what is being missed, what someone has always wanted to say but rarely found the opportunity – from the relational to the political.

This new series of podcast episodes will include a mix of passion, humour, desperation, anger, complacency and affection. They are a secretive look into uncovered emotions and a varied gathering of things that might get you fired up.

Created & captured by documentary filmmaker and writer Sam Gonçalves, this project comes with an illustration from Mairi Isla, photography by Julie Cumming and music by the legendary and mysterious Breakmaster Cylinder.
