Voice is a magazine and platform for young creatives covering arts, culture, politics and technology
We're passionate about supporting young people's views. We want to provide a wide range of perspectives plus some lively discussion through writing, videos, photos and podcasts.
We aim to bring you contemporary, thoughtful and provocative pieces. Arts, culture, politics and tech all interlink, and we explore those connections through interviews, features and comment pieces. Our team interview leading lights such as choreographer Akram Khan, comedian and actor Dane Baptiste, singer-songwriter Lucy Spraggan, comedian Tim Vine, Ed Sheeran's vocal coach Georgia Train, and flagship cultural institutions such as the BBC and the Crafts Council.
At Voice, we cultivate a national network of young journalists and commentators. Our reporters cover major festivals like Edinburgh Fringe, UK City of Culture, and Brighton Fringe where Voice is the Youth Media Partner. We run regular workshops with guest speakers, such as Mozilla Festival House at the Royal Society of Arts with online vlogger and VICE Political Correspondent Rants N Bants.
Voice is a growing magazine with an average 15,000 visits a month, and a large active pool of young people sharing their opinions. We run creative callouts, writing competitions, photography briefs and other opportunities, such as Hello Yellow ('What makes you happy?') in partnership with the charity Young Minds.
We also have a dedicated Arts Award on Voice area for young people working through Arts Award, offering you ideas and support to complete your award - good luck!
Thanks to our parent charity Upstart Projects, which supports young people to enjoy the arts and become the creative professionals of the future.
Use your voice!
