Woven Voices is London-based award-winning production company.
We seek to create and develop compelling content for screen and stage, exploring subjects including but not limited to:
- Gender, sexuality and identity from a feminist perspective
- Globalism and multiculturalism
Our aim is to encourage debate on social phenomena prone to stigmatisation.
As an international company, we seek to weave together different voices, native and migrant, in order to champion cross-cultural work.
