Meet some of our Voice Contributors. These guys often start out posting great reviews or blogs on Voice, then join our network which offers sessions with journalists, commissions, editing of their work and the chance to join the Voice team to cover major arts festivals.
We're always on the lookout for new writers or media-makers with views about the arts. Interested? Find out how to join our network of Voice Contributors.

While we love working with young people to help them develop their skills and explore their passions, there will always come a point when they move on from Voice. Whether they go to university to study, enter a different industry, or progress to a full time position somewhere else, we are proud to have supported their development, and always want to keep in touch to hear what great things they're up to.
Impact of Voice
Thanks to the dedication and belief that Upstart Projects has in the importance of youth voice, we at Voice have helped many young people find a home for their opinions, develop their art and cultural critique, and improve engagement with the sector more generally. We've collated some testimonials from the young people we have worked with over the years to highlight the benefits they've experienced personally and professionally.
