A fine time was had by all at the Community Voices Conference held on a snowy Saturday at WEA’s Leicester office. The conference was exploring Social Media and the development of course materials for the subject.
As well as myself, the conference heard from John Coster from Citizen’s Eye and Nand Sall, a standing WEA Tutor.
John founded Leicester’s community news agency Citizen’s Eye two years ago. There are now 10 news agencies under the CE umbrella, each focused on a different community interest. For more information about John’s agency please visit http://www.citizenseye.org/
Nand came to the WEA by way of BBC Radio, Television and Central TV. He is a journalist of some repute. His presentation and workshop was concerned with interviewing techniques and content creation.
We look forward to reading the evaluation of the Community Voices programme with some interest and are entirely supportive of the project’s aims and objectives.
