'Many Voices, One Nation' is a touring exhibition, curated by David Drake, Director of Ffotogallery Wales, and Alice Randone, curator at the National Assembly for Wales.
Commissioned by the National Assembly for Wales, 'Many Voices, One Nation' forms part of the programme of events and activities throughout 2019 to mark the first 20 years of devolution in Wales.
The programme aims to:
Engage, entertain and inform a variety of audiences;
Reflect contemporary Welsh life, culture and excellence;
Help people understand Wales' position in the world;
Help people understand the impact of politics on their lives, and understand and value democracy.
The exhibition will be on tour at various locations across Wales between October 2019 and June 2020, and will be launched at the Senedd, the centre for democracy and devolution in Wales, in September 2019 as part of the Festival of Democracy.

The exhibition will aim to capture the richness and diversity of the geography, culture and society of Wales, and, wherever possible, encourage public participation.
The overall curatorial strategy is to ensure the exhibition content:
Is of high quality, contemporary and relevant to the themes of the exhibition;
Reflects the richness and diversity of Wales and its communities by representing people of different ages and backgrounds from different parts of Wales;
Engages, entertains and informs a variety of audiences reflecting contemporary Welsh life, culture and excellence;
Is thought provoking and stimulates a dialogue focusing on the hopes and aspirations for Wales over the next 20 years;
Does not compromise the Assembly's political neutrality and impartiality.
