Sometimes little voices are exactly what the world needs to hear.



Small Voices Louder

Maybe ( ) Together

About

Little people have big ideas.

A show in two parts where youngsters get to explore a fun and interactive installation of cupboards and cubby holes that encourage them to have their say on some of life’s big questions. What does the world look like today? What makes you angry? What does the future look like?

Part two sees their playful, insightful and refreshingly honest responses broadcast across the airwaves and in unexpected spaces around the Festival – for everyone to hear.

Sometimes children’s voices are exactly what the world needs to hear.

This is a kids-only event | Recommended for ages 7–12 (or reading age). It is not suitable for children 6 and under, or children who cannot read.
