It’s My Story! community media event, funded by the Big Lottery Fund (BLF) was held at Antenna Media Centre, Nottingham, on Thursday 5th February 2015 and a triumph thanks to the valuable contributions and reflections from our media experts: Kevin Brown, ‘Talk Back Show’ radio presenter Kemet FM, Geeta Pendse, BBC East Midlands Today and Alexander Britton, Political Editor, Nottingham Post.
The multitude of fascinating and informed questions from the audience and media trainees participating in the It’s My Story! community media project, hosted by Norma Gregory Director of the Nottingham News Centre CIC, led to well informed responses and reflections from the panelists.
The BLF project is to provide opportunities for individuals from diverse communities in Nottingham to receive Journalism and film/video training, visits to key media institutions in Nottingham’s ‘Creative Quarter’, media portfolio creation and media career networking.
