Voices Around The World  2014/15 'Listen To Us!'
Voices Around The World is a free project with a mission to help young people everywhere work together musically to Sing Out! Speak Out! And Change The World! This year the youngsters involved will be part of making an international release of the song 'Listen To Us' written especially for the project by Laurie Lewin. The project this year also involves a video making dimension - to record students' work on the song, their views about the future of the world and to show off their great dancing moves! Youth groups, schools and individuals are all welcome to participate. The song and videos will be released in June 2015.

The Main Components of the 'Listen To Us!' Project
  1. Rehearsing, recording and submitting vocals to be part of the international recording 
  2. Making and submitting a 20-30 second  of your students presenting their views about the vital actions needed to change the world 
  3. Making and submitting a short video of your students' dance sequence to go with 'Listen To Us!'
  4. Linking with/adopting/supporting a school/schools to work with you on the singing part of the project
  5. Making and submitting short video clips/photos of your students rehearsing, recording and/or performing the music
  6. Using the free  'Listen To Us' cross curricular teaching modules 
Hopefully you will manage to cover all six areas, but we understand some schools may only be able to involve themselves in some aspects. Naturally we especially want you to be involved in the main core activity - sending in your vocals to be part of the international recording.
