About Voices

The Voices Festival has evolved from our internationally celebrated project Voices, which has reached thousands of people over the last few years and has toured the Netherlands and UK sharing Voices stories and best practice with other Universities.

Voices is a student-led campaign run through Falmouth & Exeter Students’ Union, providing a platform for people whose voices might previously have been lost in the noise. A multi-channel venture, on and off line, Voices is comprised of impactful events and prestigious volumes, sharing the raw, authentic experiences of our students.

 

Voices Volume One was selected as one of '5 Publications Making Black History' in the Issuu blog. Visit our Voices page to find out more and to read our online volumes.
