One Voice Nashville participated in a unique partnership with Metro Arts Nashville in creating “My Witness”. With a handful of students representing schools all across Nashville, we have collected stories from Nashville Civil Rights veterans in a series of 8 podcast episodes. All interviews were conducted by the students with coaching, training and support from One Voice Nashville Director, Mary Margaret Randall. This project supports the installation of the Nashville Civil Rights-inspired public artwork, Witness Walls, next to the Metro Courthouse in downtown Nashville. #NashvillePublicArt #WitnessWalls #MyWitness
Schools Represented: Big Picture, Hillsboro, Hume-Fogg, Maplewood, Martin Luther King Junior Magnet, and Overton.

This fall and spring semester, One Voice Nashville is at KIPP! So excited to work with these students and learn about personal and community storytelling, podcasting, and narrative journalism.
One Voice Nashville met with students every Friday afternoon last spring to practice interview skills, better listening techniques, and audio recording. One Voice Nashville also hosted Building Bridges, a one-week summer camp at the school in June 2016 for all rising 8th-12th graders! Nine amazing students participated in the camp and interviewed a variety of community members for their Individual projects! Look out summer 2017! Here we come!!
