Free media training workshops

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be re-launching our website to make it more interactive and community focused – and we would like you to contribute.¬†

We have scheduled three FREE workshops offering information, skills training and best practice techniques, which will encourage and enable you to tell your story, relate an issue or simply share something with others using a variety of communication platforms.

We have adopted a ‚Äėlow- definition‚Äô approach, believing that participants can create compelling audio, video and written digital content using simple technology in the form of iPhones and iPads, accessible recording equipment and computers and software.

Don’t worry if you have never used the video or audio functions on your iPhone or iPad before or if you have never tried your hand at writing as the workshops are aimed at the relative beginner. All we ask is that you have an interest and want to learn more.

We want to give everyone as much creative and artistic freedom as possible to follow their imagination and create something unique and interesting to share with a global audience.
In order to help you achieve this we are providing free training sessions covering audio, video and writing skills.

We anticipate a high demand for these sessions and encourage you to book your place as soon as possible ‚Äď remember, it‚Äôs all free.

Here are the details of the FREE training sessions – all training will take place at our offices in Bath Street from 10:30 until 12 noon.
