Many Voices

Many Voices is our exciting new project working with six groups across Scotland. The aim of Many Voices is to amplify voices that are silenced and marginalised – not to speak on their behalf, but to empower them and provide a platform so their stories can reach a wider audience. Censorship isn’t just when a black pen erases words; censorship also exists when there are people whose voices aren’t heard in the first place.
