Audio Revolution! The After School Special – Live from YxYF 2015

YMPyxyf_TheAfterSchoolSpecial_logoOn the evening of April 16 Youth Media Project held a live radio broadcast at Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe, New Mexico during Youth X Youth Fest 2015.  As a follow up to Face The Fe (which aired in December of 2014) YMP wanted to get the microphone in front of more youth voices to hone in on the many youth perspectives alive in Santa Fe today.  So we started to ask the simple question, “What is it like to be young in Santa Fe?”.  The resulting two shows, The After School Special – Part 1 and 2, offer two very different platforms in which youth convey their ideas about what is important to them in their home town of Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Part 1 is a multimedia listening event, blending audio and video, prerecorded and live performances, into one program that is now adapted for radio.  Part 2 features a live panel of local Santa Fe professionals and youth discussing a variety of topics that rose to the surface in the first part of the show.  Curious to know more?  Then sit back, relax and listen up!

Coming Out

IMG_4358Youth Media Project presents an Audio Revolution! exploring the topic of “Coming Out”.  We will investigate just how people reconcile their internal self with their outside reality, strong people who, in the face of discrimination and opposition, decide that they have no choice but to be who they are.  Our media team will cover questions such as: Why is coming out such a difficult and courageous act?  What sorts of prejudices do even the most accepting people still harbor when it comes to LGBT individuals in their community?  How can we support and help those who are struggling with these issues?  And where does education stand on this issue today?  This Audio Revolution! show is hosted by YMP interns, Shannon Latham and Chuco Aguilar.  Check it out!
