Job advertisement: Coordination of a new editorial team of refugees

Radio Blau wants to set up a new editorial department for refugees in Leipzig. The project aims to expand the news and information offering in Leipzig and the surrounding area to include the perspective of people with refugee biographies and thus strengthen media diversity. The newly vacant position is to comprehensively coordinate and advance the project “Refugee Editorial Team at Radio Blau” from November 2023 to December 2024.

Tasks: (more…)

Radio Blau and Mühlstraße 14 e.V. are cooperating in the coming weeks as part of the project “Unterwegs und angekommen”. We will visit the Monday meeting place in Mühlstraße regularly to show the visitors of the open drop-in centre how easy it is to make their own radio programme. Under the motto “Your voice is heard”, the first recordings are made and then broadcast on the Radio Blau programme. In this way, new topics that people with and without migration biographies find important are put on the air. The next dates for “gemeinsam montags” in the socio-cultural centre in Reudnitz are 15.05. and 12.06., both at 16.30pm. On 23.05. we will also report on the exhibition project “BRÜCHE”. This will be followed by an intensive workshop at Radio Blau in July.

We recommend….

In the coming weeks and months, there will be many opportunities for trainings on all kinds of topics related to radio or podcast making, also for newcomers. On the one hand, we recommend our own workshops. Furthermore, on Ascension weekend there will again be a radio camp at Lake Constance (photo), which is child-friendly, inclusive and multilingual. And from 2-4 June, Geräuschkulisse e.V. is organising a bar camp and open workshop weekend in Leipzig for blind and sighted radio listeners and sound artists, radio play enthusiasts and audiophiles. So let yourself be empowered to take the mics in your hands and make your topics be heard!
