Youth Voices For Radio Advertising

Our New Radio Training Project

This is a new project that we ran at 2Funky Arts and Radio2Funky, with help from the Documentary Media Centre during September 2022. We worked together to train 5 young people aged 18-25, focusing on radio advertising.

Training included: script writing for radio advertising, storyboard creation, recording of voiceovers and audio, as well as learning how to mix.

This project was 8 weeks in length, which allowed us to produce several radio advertisements for Leicester City Council, around Covid19 vaccine confidence. These adverts have been broadcasted via Radio2Funky 95FM.

Overall, this project was an exciting opportunity for young people to develop their radio skills and be part of an exciting regional advertising campaign for Covid19 vaccine confidence.

This project was funded by Leicester City Council Public Health.
