Make Noise
Make Noise is a unique virtual reality experience in which you use the power of your voice to break through the barriers faced by the suffragettes. In a series of colorful and abstract worlds that represent the stages of their struggle—from frustration to resistance to victory—you are invited to use your own voice and consider what it means to speak up. Created by BBC VR Hub with Anagram, and incorporating archive interviews with suffragettes, the experience empowers you to follow Emmeline Pankhurst’s advice and “make more noise.”
