Mary Seacole’s podcast project supports young people to come together and have discussion on meaningful topics that are relevant to them. This project aims to give young people a platform to be heard, voice their opinion, and challenge discrepancies in a safe, positive environment. We want to raise awareness and educate viewers about different topics in a local context. and aim to do this to give people different views on topics, both from a working professional and a young person’s perspectives. We will be filming from a variety of different locations around Bedfordshire, this is so we can gain a wide range of young people’s views.
This project allows young people to gain experience of being involved in the planning and development stages of the podcast. It will also allow them to learn new media and marketing skills and provide a platform where different views can be heard, in order to make positive changes within our community’s.
