Reaching out to the wider community was an integral part of the Absent Voices Project.  From Figure Drawing to Photo Shoots, Songwriting Workshops, Glass Making Classes to engagement with local schools, Absent Voices Artists made a major effort in raising awareness of the Sugar Industry within Inverclyde. Pupils of Whinhill, with the help of Anne Mackay and Yvonne Lyon and Kevin McDermott created and named characters that may have worked with the Sugar Sheds. Anne, Yvonne, Kevin  and the pupils enjoyed a journey of discovery, rich in imagination as they created posters and songs based on their fictional characters.
