KBOO gets a RACC Opportunity Grant!
KBOO found out this week that it will be awarded funding from the Regional Arts & Culture Council for a collaborative project with Roosevelt High School. Students are being taught how to conduct interviews, edit audio and create great radio.
This is a special opportunity for KBOO. Former evening news volunteer, Ryan White and Youth Advocate, Erin Yanke will be working with Brooke Palmer, a Literary Specialist at Roosevelt teaching students the elements of story telling with sound. We are thrilled to be able to accept the invitation from Roosevelt, which will result in a rich and powerful experience for the youth involved.
The students will be featured on KBOO radio on two separate occasions. First they will be guests on April 28th edition of The Underground, the monthly program hosted by the KBOO Youth Collective. The Roosevelt students will be interviewed about their projects and will play samples from their 'work in progress.' A few weeks later, on May 19th, the students will have their own hour-long program dedicated to sharing their project with the wider community.
Stay tuned for more updates about this exciting project.
