Harkive is an annual online research project that gathers stories about How, Where and Why people listen to music across a single day.
The project this year takes place on Tuesday 19th July – We’d love to hear your story.
You can join in by adding the #harkive hashtag to your music-related posts on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.
Alternatively, you can email your story to us, or send it via this online form. Stories are also accepted as posts on the Harkive Facebook wall.
You can write as much or a little as you want, and send as many entries as you like.
There will be some live Data Visualisations on 19th July, powered by Harkive’s API. You’ll be able to see the number of stories told, and where in the world they have come from.
Harkive is part of a PhD research project. You can read more about the background of that here, and find more detailed information about our research ethics here.
To further aid this research, we invite you to complete our 2016 Music Listening Survey. It takes around 5-10 minutes, and will help us produce data that looks like this.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or say hello on Twitter (@harkive)
Finally, please do consider joining in on Tuesday 19th July by telling Harkive your story.
