Voices of Edinburgh

What does equality mean to you? Voices of Edinburgh is a project based around photos and podcasts of the people of Edinburgh answering this question in their own words.

The Process

We ask participants to write a few words about what equality means to them on a whiteboard and then pose for a photograph. Everyone uses the same whiteboard and stands against the same backdrop. We don’t make any changes or corrections to anyone’s message, so each whiteboard shows the participants own words.

The Photographs

We are really proud to now have a digital and roaming exhibition packed with over 200 real voices of people of Edinburgh, and are very grateful to everyone who’s taken part so far.

This is an ongoing, growing project that we will continue to build on, creating a huge digital archive of real Voices of Edinburgh. If you would like to participate, or know someone who would, get in touch!

Equality is a universal right and we welcome input from anyone, whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever your life experience. Please come along and add your Voice.

We are always looking for new venues, in any part of Edinburgh, to host the exhibition so if you know of a location please contact us.

Want to get involved?

We need you to be involved so your voices can be heard. Whether you are an individual, group, or organisation we’d love for you to be a part of our Voices of Edinburgh project and hear what equality means to you.

Hosting our exhibition

If you are interested in exhibiting the hard-copy photos and/or podcast episodes, for example at an event you are holding, please get in touch with us and we can discuss the details further.

Photos are A2 in size in both portrait or landscape and we can provide clips with the photos for hanging. We also have large format photo books that can be used to display the photos at venues where space is limited and, for example, only a table is available.

For the podcast episodes we have four tablets supplied with headphones, along with transcripts of each episode.
