100 Ways to Listen is a featured part of the Street Science program presented by Griffith University. The programs revolves around the theme of Science-on-the-GO! which features hands-on science exhibits, experiments, demonstrations, and games showcasing STEM-tastic activities. Griffith University will showcase the most incredible, cutting-edge ideas in science. The free 100 Ways to Listen program is hosted inside the Queensland Conservatorium exploring the art and science of sound with events including the Sonic Playground and 84 Pianos. The 100 Ways to Listen experiences stretch throughout South Bank with Augmented Reality Sound Walks that allow you to listen beneath the surface of global waterways and use GPS points along the Brisbane River to trigger audio based on location and movement.

100 Ways to Listen is a curatorial project based at the Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre at Griffith University. The Queensland Conservatorium Research Centre (QCRC) undertakes leading-edge research that tackles the complex and multi-faceted role that music plays in contemporary society. To do this, the centre collaborate with national and international partners and stakeholders to cultivate projects that are creative and imaginative in content and design, interdisciplinary in nature, and dedicated to addressing the pressing needs of our time. The research outcomes from QCRC cater to diverse audiences across the community, music industry and higher education sector and are published and presented across a wide range of platforms to achieve far-reaching impact. In addition, QCRC curates a vibrant program of yearly events that bring together research with learning and teaching and community engagement.
The QCRC's five focus areas provide diverse yet complimentary lenses through which our researchers explore the multi-faceted role that music plays, and offer different viewpoints on how music can address the key issues of our time. The areas of Artistic Research in Music, Music and Communities, Music learning and teaching, Music and Technology and Music, Health and Wellbeing offer the opportunity to understand how music can be an agent for social change, influence health, create new teaching opportunities and create exciting new ways to interact with the world around us.
