During weekly two-hour sessions running through June & July, Mix Nights' Radio Production & Broadcasting course will provide 8 women and non-binary people with the tools, confidence and space to create their own radio show.
Under the guidance of Noods residents and renowned Bristol-based DJs Manami & Tilly, participants will be given an industry-standard guide to producing radio shows, from planning through to recording and editing, presenting and interviewing.
Similarly to Saffron's long-running Mix Nights DJing workshops, which have offered training to over 130 graduates to date, the course will culminate with a showcase, which will see participants host an 8-hour live takeover on the Noods airwaves on Sunday 1 August.
Founded in Bristol in 2015, Saffron is a non-profit organisation that works to advance gender equality in electronic music and music tech spaces, primarily offering training to women and non-binary people in production, sound engineering and DJing.
Their new Radio Production & Broadcasting course represents the first project on NOODS LEVELS CIC, a new arm of Noods Radio focussed on providing young creatives with education and opportunities in music.
Places on the course are available at £145 per person, with a number of free and discounted places available to ensure accessibility for all.
