When Voice re-launched, we said we wanted to provide you with contemporary, thoughtful and provocative pieces, as well as offer a platform for you to share your own views and opinions. This year, more than any before it, we feel like we’ve succeeded in both.
By tackling specific themes such as mental health and activism we opened the doors to rich conversation about society and how we can work together to improve it. Our coverage of major arts and cultural events helped us to showcase the wide range of talent the industry has to offer, and as Youth Media Partner to Brighton Fringe we provided opportunities to the largest number of young local reviewers yet. With Brexit continuing to loom, we are giving young people a crucial voice in the debate, highlighting both the maturity of their thoughts, and the legitimacy of their concerns.
In fact, regardless of topic, we are blown away time and time again with just how talented, considered, and kind you all are. We love the community we have here on Voice, and enjoy reading every one of the 1300+ posts you upload to the site this year. We already have some great plans lined up for 2019 to further highlight the amazing array of content and opinions we host on the website, and I can’t wait to share them with you in due course.
In the meantime though, I’ve chosen some of the best content published on the website over the last 12 months. Maybe you missed some of it, or maybe you think we missed something! Why not let us know on Twitter - @voicemaguk
From all of us here at Voice, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and look forward to reading all your great content in 2019!
