Who Am I?
Language is a part of our identity - as much as your background, history or heritage, who you are is how you talk.

In Leicester, English isn't always the first language or even the mother tongue - so for people like Kwaku who spoke English at home in Africa - language is part of a confusing struggle for self knowledge.

Using your voice to communicate your expression gives us all a common link in our city...

Have a look at our Leicester Voices page and pop into our open centre to take part in the voices survey for yourself!
