FUTURES2020 is taking to the airwaves! Futures on Air is a specially curated series of programmes broadcast on Community Radio stations across the South West.
Climate change, feminism and South Asian music are just some of the topics that will be covered in a series of programmes delivered in collaboration with Bath Radio, Phonic FM (Exeter, Soundart Radio (Totnes) and Radio St Austell Bay (Cornwall).
Working with community radio practitioners Stellaria Media we've been facilitating a series of programmes, co-created by members of four community radio stations.
Community Radio is a space for people to make radio in their own way, talk about meaningful issues in their lives and connect with others. For FUTURES on Air, members of Bath Radio, Phonic FM (Exeter), Soundart Radio (Totnes) and Radio St Austell Bay (Cornwall) have identified topics that are important to them and have been paired up with researchers from across the FUTURES2020 consortium working in relevant areas. Through a participatory community media methodology, we are working with a variety of approaches for us to listen, respond and create together.
