We are thrilled to have been awarded funding from the Audio Content Fund to make The Waves, a series of short dramas exploring the contemporary impact of our colonial past. Each story is explores a different part of the UK, written and produced locally and broadcast on a network of community radio stations. We have an extraordinary group of writers, all young women of colour writing from experience about issues close to all our hearts. Full announcements soon.
Also coming up is a global project exploring how we might make our cities kinder places to live. It’s an interactive documentary recorded in cities all around the world and featuring insight, expertise and public opinion from people in four continents. Again, more news to come.
