FREE Summer Camp For Limerick's Migrant Teens
Are you interested in learning how to produce your own radio programme or podcast?
Well, now’s your chance!
Gain the skills to give your community a voice to be heard!
Wired FM, in partnership with Limerick Institute of Technology, are running Empowering New Voices, a summer camp specifically for migrant youths in Limerick city and county from the ages of 13-17.
The free course will run from 10-4pm from August 9-13 with podcast production days on August 16 and 17 on LIT’s Moylish Campus.
Lunches and refreshments are also included.
Your teen years are the best time to plant the seed and unlock your potential in radio and podcasting and gain invaluable experience in a friendly and supportive environment.
On this course you can interview interesting guests, sharing ideas and knowledge about topics you are passionate about.
You will cover programme ideas and storytelling along with tips and tricks about recording, editing and broadcasting your programmes.
You will be introduced to programme planning as well as what software and equipment to use during the early stages of your radio and podcasting journey!
Your confidence will improve and you will become a great presenter quicker than you can say ‘on air’.
The content that the group produce will be launched a part of the inaugural Limerick Media and Arts Conference 2021 on August 25 and 26.
Spin South West presenter and previous Wired FM resident Eoghain Fitzgerald said:
“College radio is brilliant.
It's where you get to learn your craft and where you get to have a bit of fun have a chat with your friends about the stuff you love.”
Eimear O’Mahony outlined how important her time in Community Radio has impacted her career:
“My time in Wired FM is directly related to where I am now.
I've worked at RTÉ for 20 years now.
I've worked in sport; current affairs and I produced the Late Late Toy Show.
I've produced Up for The Match and Winning Streak.
I’ve done the lot it's all down to my time at Wired FM.'
