We're here to support local projects that make Hammersmith & Fulham a great place to live!
Commuity Media project that tackles the lack of creative training for the 16-70 age group cross generational project dealing with social issues of loneliness and isolation and ageism. 16-30 require specialist technology and media training to keep abreast of fast changing technology whilst making a creative impact through podcasting,vlogging, animation, writing for magazine, pitching radio ideas and creating radio content. This is achieved by running courses by specialist tutors, once taught participants take an active role in running the community radio station and producing the quarterly magazine. The content is then fed-back into local Radio serving as a radio action desk for local stories linking in with local stations. Content produced will look at social issues, giving a voice to the unheard and buidling relationships within the community.
