Whispers & Shouts

Whispers & Shouts is a collaborative project between Durham University and Skimstone Arts celebrating and exploring stories about equality and diversity with staff and students for a special radio broadcast and podcast on Tuesday 30 March 2021.

Staff and students at Durham University have been invited to take part in Whispers & Shouts, a fantastic project about belonging and identity with the University. Whispers & Shouts promotes a clear commitment to ensuring and demonstrating a positive culture that shouts about inclusion, acceptance and value, and also addresses whispers of uncertainty and disempowerment.

Whispers are also the dreams that eventually reality shouts out, as diversity thrives and is celebrated across the University community.

Students and staff have been invited to have a conversation with us and/or join us in creating a story, poem, song or spoken word about your experiences of working and studying at Durham.  Our aim is to hear from a rich diversity of students and staff from Colleges, Academic Departments and Professional Services during February 2021. There are 20 x 30-minute initial conversation opportunities available.

Skimstone Arts will create a radio show including stories, spoken word, songs and poems inspired by these stories, to be broadcast on Tuesday 30 March 2021.

To take part please contact:

Claire Webster Saaremets, Artistic Director at Skimstone Arts at claire@skimstone.org.uk between 11am and 6pm Monday to Friday before Saturday 20 February 2021.
