Connecting, Engaging & Inspiring through Radio and Music Production

 

Chin Up

 

Listen to "Chin Up" on Spreaker.


Summary

Devised with young people from across Torbay, the Chin Up! project has spent two years collecting different stories, from young people to veterans, about their experiences and memories of wartime entertainment. We helped Young Volunteers from Brixham's The Edge develop their recording, interviewing and editing skills so they could interview older people at tea dances. We also broadcast their radio play live online.

 

 

Aims

  • To develop intergenerational understanding and skill sharing
  • To develop confidence and communication skills of all participants
  • To collect, share, celebrate and archive oral history about wartime entertainment
  • To develop transferable digital technology skills
