Event description

Description

Got Your Back is a brand-new media where young people in Hull talk about the issues most important to them. As part of our launch activities we are holding a series of FREE workshops at C4DI in the City Centre to help 14 to 19-year olds gain new skills and create great media content that has a positive impact on others.

Journalism for blogging, press and radio

What’s your angle?! Participants will work together and with experienced media professionals to create real social issue-based stories. We’re even going to try to get on the radio!

Part one - 11am to 4pm on Tuesday 31st July

Covers: meet the journalist, researching and choosing your angle, building your story and finding an audience.

Part two - 9am to 2pm on Friday 3rd August

We’ll take everything we’ve developed so far and see how we can make it even stronger. As well as publishing prepared work via the Got Your Back social media we’ll pitch our angles to the local newspapers and radio stations to see what we can make happen!

This is great opportunity for young people interested in media, social issues and trying something new.
