Starting January 2019 we started delivering, Sound Conclusions, an exciting 30 month project funded by The National Lottery Community Fund, for people from Doncaster to get involved and volunteer in music and community radio services, funded by the TNL Community Fund
The National Lottery Community Fund project focusses on nurturing community participation using creativity and volunteering opportunities and includes developing areas within our HQ on Nether Hall Road. The project is working to bridge gaps and build links between communities. Activities have brought local people of all ages from different social and economic backgrounds, to work together, learn, enjoy new experiences, and take active roles in delivering community music and media services for the wider community. Through these activities, participants have also built stronger relationships with each other.
129 participants have engaged in Sound Conclusions training and volunteering opportunities to date, including;
A training programme designed for people interested in the Radio / Broadcast Media Industries, to develop new skills around various roles and functions within these industries.
A training programme designed for people interested in the Music Industry, to develop new skills via a choice of routes including, Song Writing, Music Production, Event Promotion and Running a Record Label.
Assisting with recording studio tasks, including planning recording sessions, operating studio equipment, working with professional musicians and commercial clients.
Presenting or producing radio shows and, roving reporting, recording broadcast features, community liaison, technical support roles on Sine FM.
