Project Description

Ireland has a very active community media sector, and community radio and the media in general can be a very positive force for promoting integration and intercultural dialogue.

This project brings together Irish and non-EU nationals through a community media training course that is centred around intercultural dialogue.

Benefits and results

The project runs FETAC (Further Education and Training Awards Council) Level 4 training courses in community radio and intercultural media literacy. Each course has eight participants who produce a series of eight intercultural radio programmes. This enables the non-EU nationals to gain specialist knowledge and skills that they can in time develop further.
