Little people have big ideas.
Imagine a space for thinking. For musing over life’s big questions. What is love? What is important to remember in life? What is a big idea?
Small Voices Louder is a child-only space for playing and pondering. It’s a magical world of tents and teepees where kids lie under clouds, talk to an alien, discover a dinosaur egg and step into a portal to the future. It’s a space for dreaming, wondering and talking about the bigger things in life.
It is also a recording space, where kids’ answers are turned into soundtracks for adult ears to stop and listen to. We believe that children, sometimes, are exactly what the world needs to hear. And adults don’t listen enough.
This is a kids-only event | Recommended for ages 7–12 (or reading age). It is not suitable for children 6 and under.
