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!

Jimmy’s Story

High school isn’t easy. Jimmy’s high school experience was especially difficult. Now a student at the United World College in Montezuma, NM, Jimmy went through years of being bullied. Jimmy’s story was part of a radio show put on by YMP and the Santa Fe High School’s Student Wellness Action Team that was created to illuminate the dangers of bullying to help reduce the terrible trend. Please lend your ears to this intensely raw story that details the horror of being bullied to put a stop to the violence.

The Santa Fe High School Student Wellness Team (SWAT) decided to better their community and peers by creating a radio program dedicated to reducing bullying. This beautifully interwoven poem, written and performed by Ariana Maestas with performance help from Alix Monastero is meant to explore the ways people react to bullying differently.  Her simple structure and narrative flow makes this piece extremely powerful and intense. Please take the time to learn from the heart about gender differences in bullying situations.
