Leicester Stories Community Reporters Club

 Registration is closed for this event
Are you interested in telling stories of positive social change in Leicester? Are you interested in improving your skills in creating and sharing media in a way that is inclusive, creative and acts as a way of supporting dialogue? Are you interested in making and sharing DIY media in order to tell stories about our sense of belonging, identity and the issues that shape our lives in our communities and our neighbourhoods? Leicester Stories Community Reporters Club is a weekly meet-up where people who are interested in making media for positive social change can get together to share their ideas and experiences.
Leicester Stories is hosting a Community Reporters Club over the summer.
The next session is Thursday 26th August, 10am - 12pm at the Documentary Media Centre.
Do you want to take your DIY media skills to the next level and help your community group or people in your neighbourhood improve how they tell stories about our lives, where we belong, and what will help us to build back better from the pandemic?
This week we are recording a podcast about what we have learnt and how we can apply the lessons of becoming community reporters. We'll discuss what the role could be of community reporting in the future, what makes it different, and how we can encourage more people to think about improving their media skills for the benefit of their neighbourhood, their community and themselves.
The community reporters club is a chance to meet like-minded people who have an interest in community-focussed communications, and who are active in supporting our communities by improving how we share information, news and foster discussion.
We'll consider the following topics and how to get the most from them:
  • Blogging
  • Photography
  • Radio
  • Reporting
  • Podcasting
  • Soundwalks
  • Social Media
  • Storytelling

The club is free, but we have a limit of twelve places each week, so it's welcome if you can register in advance.

It's over eighteen years old only, and we will be applying social distancing measures as required.
