Supported using public funding, by Youth Music.

Radio2Funky: Youth Radio (R2FYR) is a training project aimed at developing young people’s skills in technical and creative aspects of radio projection, so they can create youth-led radio content.

This project will develop your musical knowledge with practical sessions around different equipment (mixers, mics, CDJ’s), and will also train you in: DJing, interviewing, presenting and blogging.

Workshops are led by highly experienced music practitioners, Bhavik Solanki and Vijay Umrao.

During this project, you will work collaboratively towards creating content for recording and podcasting. You will also learn useful skills that can help lead you to becoming a peer mentor or developing our radio show.

Through technical learning, peer education and music learning, participants will boost their confidence, personal skills and increase their education and employability outcomes.

This project is aimed at young people aged 16-25 years, and will give you the opportunity to work towards a Bronze Arts Award accreditation.
