Voices: the building blocks of social change

Author: Dlamini, N. (Community Development Resource Association)
Publication date: 2013

Out of the diversity of “voices” we find the richness of conversations, and out of our rich conversations spring the relationships, ideas and impulses for change. How authentic voices are brought, received, engaged with and supported makes a world of difference to the quality of conversation, to human engagement and to the contribution we each can make to processes of change.

This article explores some thoughts about voice that the author has collected over the years, experiencing both his own voice and those of others, and becoming more conscious of the power that lies in voice.
