The majority of the people you encounter on a day to day basis, out and about, at work or on your commute, have a story. Some might wish to share it and some might decide to listen. Miss Kakande(host) is tired of Hollywood endings, contrived storylines, and morality lessons, aren't you? The Voices of... is a series of events and one to one conversations with the local community starting in the heart of Hackney This all began as a talk show project in 2015. It has since evolved into the Voices Of... The Voice Of... was born from the listening and sharing of the untold stories in their rawest form. 

What we'll deliver:

  • Work and give opportunities to those interested in the Arts
  • Bring the community together
  • Collect untold stories

Why it's a great idea:

Through the Voices Of..., personal stories will be recorded and shared via a podcast and Youtube always in their rawest form.Preserved for future generations.Oral History!The storytellers are the people of Hackney/London. The Voices Of... brings together people of all backgrounds to tell and listen to the stories of Life.Listening or telling gives people a chance to reflect on their own life​ experiences.

Steps to get it done:

  • A calendar of events
  • up load first stories to a podcasting platform

Bringing the community together. Reducing Isolation WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT STORIES OR THE VOICES OF... ? MISS KAKANDE (host)IS A NORMAL WOMAN FROM UP NORTH She knows all about Isolation. She came to London knowing no one and for a time it remained that way.(cue the violins) She craved connection and feeling part of something. She wanted to be part of a community. There are still people who are; Isolated Lonely Down and Up! People with things to say and stories to share. Community is important - Fact. The Voices of... is one way of bringing people together.
