About Young Voices
FARE’s media development program aims to:
- Provide young people with new skills in the media
- Support young people to confidently interact with all aspects of media.
We teach young people new skills in:
- digital photography,
- film making,
- graphic design,
- desktop publishing
Young Voices defines creative art as something which a young person has created themselves and is proud to have published.
Young Voices Magazine
The young people involved actively run a quarterly youth magazine for the local area called Young Voices.
The magazine is written and edited by young people from schools and youth clubs across Easterhouse. The aim of the magazine is to enable young people to write about issues affecting them and things that they are interested in. The articles are written in an informal manner, about subjects which affect young people at this stage in their life; alcohol, drugs, the law, territorialism.
Young Voices Online
FARE’s Young Person’s Media Group and John Wheatley College’s Youth Access project have recently joined forces to bring a new multimedia dimension to the Young Voices magazine.
In a new arrangement supported by GCPP, the Media Group has taken over the Youth section of the Glasgow East Pathfinder. The online version of the magazine incorporates all the articles and reviews currently available in the printed version as well as multimedia output created by the young people in Glasgow East. This includes animation, video, photography, graphics and music.
The Media Group is currently involved in a number video projects. The video projects enable young people to express their views/opinions and individuality through digital photography, filming and editing. Challenge stereotypical views of local young people and help develop IT and multimedia skills in an interactive and fun environment, increasing their self confidence.
