Postcards & Podcasts

Blending ancient and modern, Postcards and Podcasts will connect young people with their community and heritage. We will provide training in digital technologies, photography and film, promote our heritage and give young people the skills and professional portfolios to establish new enterprise and stimulate tourism. Funding will be used to establish a one year seed project, which is part of a broader project concept supported by a diverse range of local organisations. This funding enables us to run the first year of our Postcards and Podcasts project to create new work for young people in our area that also nourishes the heritage and tourism upon which we depend. The first year is about building links with heritage organisations and other partners, creating a forum to develop a shared vision, developing digital skills and starting to build a global online presence for our area. The funding will support one young person into part-time employment as a Heritage Coordinator for our area to work with up to 30 local heritage organisations who support or are interested in our project. It will also fund 3 more young people as Heritage Ambassadors to work part-time directly with these organisations.
