Sound Communities

 

Connect, Engage, Inspire 

Summary 

 

This is our outreach radio programme which is going from strength to strength. We ran workshops and then broadcasts in youth clubs in community centres all over Torbay. Young people conducted interviews, created jingles and played their music to each other, connecting through our new radio streaming platform, Spreaker. We even managed to buy each centre their own recording kit to encourage them to keep recording stories and events taking place in their centres. This work is funded by the Neighbourhood Youth Pot, the Torbay Youth Cultural Partnership’s Bridge Challenge Fund and the National Lottery.

 

Aims:

 

•To connect young people in Torbay

•To develop young people’s aspirations and skills

•To increase awareness of events and support for young people

•To develop intergenerational understanding in Torbay

•To increase young people’s participation with Parkfield’s facilities
