ROWDY RIO’S; A Radio Show discover what kind of activities young people like

1890This is an edited version of a creative consultation Sam was involved with as part of his secondment with The Rio Ferdinand Foundation. The idea was to use the format of a Radio Show to discover what kind of activities young people from the local area would like to see in the future. Hear the radio show here…

The drive of the young people involved was breathtaking and the issues they raised so passionately, especially when interviewing local councillor Richard Critchley, seemed to arise from widespread lack of provision.

We hope that the work and passion of those involved in this project will help those in the area rise from their slumber and realise that supporting the interests of young people is the way to support the positive future of the local area.

The new project begins Friday 31st of October, running for six weeks in The Gateway, 2 Smith Street, Walkden, Salford M28 3EZ from 5.30 till 6.30pm. Entry is free and there will be opportunities to learn both street and hip-hop dance or film making techniques or both if you can super multitask.
