Summary 

 

Sound Communities developed "Speak Up" with Soundart Radio and Aune Head Arts who won two years of funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to develop the speaking and listening skills of 11-19 year olds through radio production. We went into schools and ran creative radio workshops and students then came to Soundart Radio and took over the station for 3 days at the end of each year. We also trained teachers and are producing a learning pack which will be widely disseminated.

 

All audio work from this project can currently be found on:  www.makewav.es/speakup
