Station House Media Unit (shmu), established as a charity in 2003, is one of the core cultural organisations in Aberdeen, and is at the forefront of Community Media development in Scotland, supporting residents in the seven regeneration areas of the city in radio and video production, traditional and on-line publications, music production and digital inclusion. The organisation also supports other disadvantaged communities, both geographic and communities of interest, with an employability and training arm and a programme for offenders, both pre and post release.
shmu are offering exciting youth media taster sessions to all P7 pupils that are moving up to academy after the school holidays. This is available to any young person that either lives or attends the schools in shmu target areas; Northfield, Cummings Park, Middlefield, Woodside, Tillydrone, Seaton and Torry.
Our latest group of trainees from Middlefield have been hard at work in the studio for the last 6 weeks to create a pre-recorded show.
Kerry, Leann, Gemma, Michelle and Susan are all Middlefield residents and are looking to present the show regularly after the summer.
They'll be blethering about the summer playscheme, some of the services in the area and the Haudagain scheme.
