Voices of Edinburgh

 

EaRN are holding an exhibition until Sunday 2 July entitled Voices of Edinburgh at Edinburgh Palette which is a project based around photos and podcasts that showcase the voices of people living in Edinburgh, and what equality means to them. The event is on our Facebook page here where you can register your interest in the exhibition.

The exhibition features 94 photographs and 12 podcast episodes (each with an accompanying transcript) and you can listen to these podcasts and view the photos below as an online exhibition.

Although the exhibition ends at the beginning of July, we hope the project will continue to grow as word spreads and more of the city participate, so we will continue to add to the growing collection of photographs and podcasts episodes, and share and promote the project as widely as possible.
