Life in Direct Provision in Galway

Last October, Claremorris Community Radio aired a programme produced by several residents of the Direct Provision centre in Ballyhaunis, who had completed our QQI Level 3 course in Media Expression.

CCR’s John Nolan, with some of the residents of Direct Provision in Galway who took our Level 3 Media Expression course in the months before Christmas.

Following the airing of this programme, the station began a second course, this time with a selection of residents of the two Direct Provision centres in Galway city. This course was generously facilitated by our colleagues in Flirt FM, NUI Galway campus radio, who made their studios and rooms available to us for several weeks throughout November and December.

The programme created by the students of this second course will be aired on Claremorris Community Radio on Saturday, January 19th, at 5pm. It will be repeated on Tuesday next, January 22nd, at 7pm and will also be available on our mixcloud from the start of next week.

I-to-I Meeting this Saturday

The first I-to-I meeting of the year will take place on Saturday afternoon.

We’re starting in the studios with a one-hour I to I session at 2.00 pm. If you have any great ideas for programmes or anything else to do with the radio, come and talk to us about them. If, however, you need to discuss an issue, we there to talk it through with you – privately and confidentially, if you wish.  

Then at 3.00 pm, there’s a one-hour Hands-on Help session. This will focus on Live Broadcasting. We will be sitting in on a live session to observe, ask questions and share knowledge. This is suitable for everyone. Experienced live broadcasters can help beginners and may also pick up points that they didn’t realise they didn’t know! 

At 4.00 pm, our New Year social is a Cafe, coffee and cakes get-together in the Araby Cafe (pay your own way). 

Looking forward to meeting up with you at one, two or all three events!
