WHAT DOES THE WORLD NEED TO HEAR?
We believe that sometimes, children are exactly what the world needs to hear.
Joyful. Innocent. Playful. Insightful. Critical. Brutally Honest.
They reflect us, don’t they?
And, seed a sense of responsibility for the future.
Small Voices Louder is a two part work.
The first part is an interactive installation that asks children social, political and philosophical questions.
The second takes these recorded answers and delivers them to adult ears through radio and public space.
