Voices of Today is a joint project with LeftLion that looks at Nottingham’s proud rebel history

The project asks what it means to be a rebel in Nottingham today. Its aim is to inspire Nottingham residents to get creative and represent their experiences or perspectives on activism, protest and rebellion in a number of ways, including poetry, drawing, singing, acting, dance, creating a protest banner or something different altogether.

Remote online activities and packs have brought the people of Nottingham in on this project and informed the themes of the film, which will launch in 2021.
