Workshops in media for teenagers
TEENAGERS with a passion for music, TV or radio can take part in a series of workshops in Peterborough this month.
BBC Blast gives youngsters aged 13 to 19 a chance to try out new skills, showcase their work and discover more about the film, fashion, music, dancing, writing, art and design industries.
Each year the BBC takes the workshops on tour across the nation, to give teenagers hands-on experience.
They have joined forces with Peterborough City Council’s young people’s service, Peterborough Regional College and city schools.
Public workshops will take place on June 26 and 27 at Peterborough Festival, in Central Park. Places do not need to be booked.
Workshops for city school pupils will run on June 24 at Ormiston Bushfield Academy at Orton Waterville and at Stanground College. On June 25, workshops will run at Peterborough Regional College and Thomas Deacon Academy.
Teenagers will work with BBC staff and industry professionals on animation, music production, radio and video packages. For more information visit www.bbc.co.uk/blast
