We've been up to a lot this past year at Primary Voice. Filled with research and exploration, we've come out of 2015 with big ideas. We had a name change, a website remodel and our first published piece came out.
Awesome improvements to the site include:
The "Music" tab: http://www.primaryvoice.org/music
The Messenger Band, Cambodia's first protest band, partnered with Primary Voice to host two of their songs, No Choice and Goodbye My Friends. These songs highlight the everyday struggles garment workers face inside and outside the factory. In addition, the band did an full interview (translated by Choun Reasey) to share their journey advocating for human rights in Cambodia. The Messenger Band was also featured on The Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator blog in November.
The "Field Work" tab: http://www.primaryvoice.org/field-work-1/
Now you can view video clips from the field in China and Cambodia. These windows into everyday life catch workers off the clock with their kids, shopping at the store and enjoying the relief of a heavy rain. They are key to understanding how workers live. They were shot in an I Phone 5, undercover, so the audio isn't always great!
Stay tuned for 2016. Big things are bound to come!
