Our project to empowered refugee youth and women via delivery of both online and physical training in creative activities. These activities were focused on how to create podcasts, how cameras work, sound recording and editing. Online trainings were to be supported by one-to-one coaching from experts in the field.
The participants of the project recorded a podcast drama series, sharing the stories of Refugee African-Scots within the local community as their final project for the trainings received during the project.
The entire project and the recorded podcast involved the synergy of creative individuals from the Refugee Black Africans living in Scotland. At a time when Refugee Black stories are underrepresented and often undervalued in Scotland, we wanted to use this opportunity to shine a spotlight on members of the Scottish Refugee African community, amplifying their voices and creative abilities to a wider audience.
