The Soundseekers Audio Festival is a global online and broadcasting collection of radio broadcasting content created by refugees, asylum and migrant communities. Refugee asylum and migrant communities are supported in developing their multimedia skills in a blended learning environment and community radio stations across Europe broadcast their creative content. Audiences will have the opportunity to engage with content through social media platforms. We envisage this project becoming an annual online festival.
Democratisation of access to knowledge is a central aim of this project part of which is to collapse the boundaries of space and time and more importantly the ability to access open and accessible technologies. Previously the preserve of elites, now under and non-represented voices from minority communities have access to a plethora of digital platforms to share voice and content from.
