Voices of Colour is a page created to showcase the voices of students from Black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds, whose creativity and unique experiences are often under represented within art and literature. The School of Humanities are thrilled to provide a place to promote art and offer students a channel to publish their work.
This project enables students to showcase work that explores identity and experience. It also offers a unique perspective of both the person’s past and present, alongside future hopes and ambitions. Literature and Art have the power to resonate with diverse groups of people and promote cultural exchange and dialogue, giving you the chance to understand the unique experiences of the creators.
Understanding the differences and difficulties that underrepresented people face on a day to day basis is the first step in creating positive change for the future and, although this is just the beginning, we are looking forward to seeing how this project will grow.
The University of Worcester is passionate about sharing the work of its students, and promoting opportunities for artists of colour to express themselves through, but not limited to, mediums of poetry and prose.
We hope that by promoting the amazing expression of our students, this will help to generate conversations, and inspire understanding and appreciation of all of the diverse aspects of the student community of Worcester.
