The NEWBIAS Show hosted by CARPETFACE first hit the airwaves in April 2019 has been running every 4th Tuesday 14:00-16:00 BST ever since on independent international digital station Threads Radio (HQ’d in London and Berlin with streams broadcast from both).
An eclectic mix of live musical performances, interviews and topical panel-debates aimed at highlighting solutions for positive social change and featuring a wide range of special guests, the show has become a regular dissemination point for NEWBIAS project outputs and a platform for other solution providers including Respace Projects, Refugee Community Kitchen, Global Carnivalz, Daubeny Primary School, Andwhat? LDN, and a host of independent artists.
Plans are in now firmly in place with sponsors Threads Radio to further develop the project to incorporate more input from the young people we support on all aspects of show production, direction, curation, hosting, marketing and promotion, with a view to eventually launching a fully youth-led version of the NEWBIAS show model, under the working title “Headskillz Radio”.
This initiative has 2 ultimate aims:
- To utilise our public platform as a catalyst and general standard-bearer for Youth Empowerment and Social Justice.
- To share various aspects of the show production between one group of young beneficiaries based in the coastal community of Bude, Cornwall SWUK and another based in London, with a view to developing exchange-programme initiatives that break down cultural barriers, which lead to increased opportunities for career development through collaborations with other young creatives and hands-on mentoring from industry professionals.
If you would like to support the project or would simply like to know more, please do not hesitate to get in touch through our contact form.
