Growth in Community Broadcasting and Art

broadcasting merges art and radio

Broadcasting was the topic of conversation in Preston in Lancashire where the hub of ideas and ambitions to have more media activities in the community was taking place.  The combination of Radio, television and culture was a winning subject. Community Media Association and the Voluntary Arts Network set up the ‘road show’.

Their main discussion was focused on broadcasting especially as the government was preparing to launch local television across the nation.  It has been an initiative tried before but with out success.  However this time the government feels confident and prepared to support such as these to look at the advantages TV could have on the community.

Many similar meetings have been held across the nation promoting the TV initiative.  The one in Preston believe they have a great community spirit and want to encourage the association with any local television channel that may open in the region.  The Community Media Association talked of the future of television saying it was ideal for a variety of reasons but especially for voluntary groups who would like to use the outlet to help spread their message.  It could be done alongside radio broadcasts which already contribute to the service of voluntary work
