MITA member launches Telling Stories project


MITA member Runaway Media has set up an interactive media project in Luton that will engage young people in a dialogue about themselves, their hometowns and their experiences of living in a multicultural society. Telling Stories will be run with teams of young people working at every level: they will design the look of the project, present it and, most importantly, record, distribute and discuss the stories. Young people working on the project have set up a facebook page with stories by local and international role models like journalist and broadcaster Sarfraz Manzoor and American poet Maya Angelou to encourage 16-30 year olds to send in their stories. The project will run until the end of September. For further information, contact Jim Hornsby on 01273 550466 or at [email protected].
