Amplifying voices that are less likely to be heard (no one is voiceless)

UN Voices from ourentries on Vimeo.

An absolutely amazing project put on by the UN in Australia (coming soon to major cities across the world). Seven images of different people with harrowing and inspiring stories were photographed and their images were placed around major Australian cities. Using unique photographic mobile technology the user would capture the person's mouth on the poster then MMS the image to a number that would call them back with the person's story.

The mobile call invited you to visit to leave your own voice and listen to the other stories you may not have encountered. You could also read the comments left by others.
