The raising voices project will be putting on some activity sessions over the coming months from January 2022. These sessions will revolve around using poetry as a way of expressing yourself and telling stories of hardship, taking pictures to show visually the experiences that people are facing, and how to maintain motivation and wellness during times of difficulty.
