Our speaking up about series is all about bringing you the best articles from School of Visibility students, and our founder Samantha Nolan-Smith, on topics you’ve told us you want to learn more about. We’ll be growing these throughout 2019 so be sure to check back over the coming months.
NB: we curate the collection of articles for each of the subject areas and the first people we go to for articles are the students of our classes and programs. If you’d like to submit an article for inclusion in one of our subject areas, please email us at hello(at)theschoolofvisibility(dot)com.
