Radio Immaginaria Up & Running

On Wednesday 10th July 2019, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ, in collaboration with Radioimmaginaria Media Hub, organised a one-day event for young people to experience being presenters and record radio programmes while being in other environments. From Birgu, we catch the Ferry to Valletta. In Valletta we took the lift to go to Upper Barrakka Gardens. Here young people recorded the first part of the programme. While being in Valletta young people were giving out information to the Radioimmaginaria team about some history of Valletta and saw a police parade as well. They went to “is-Suq tal-Belt”, where they recorded a brief episode. After lunch young people took the bus to go to Sliema. They recorded another part of the programme at a large shopping mall. After they went to Marsascala, where the young people took some picture so the Radioimmaginaria team could upload these to the website and link them to the Maltese section programmes. Their last trip was to Kalkara, where young people recorded a small part about the Kalkara feast and had dinner.

“It's a new experience and I'm definitely having a lot of fun” - Jean Vella

Radioimmaginaria is an online radio for young people in Europe, produced, directed and managed by young people of age 11 to 17 years. The participants have been training how to do online radio program and are starting to produce the first online radio programs themselves. The young people edit and put the programme together by mixing the sound, add the music and upload it online. This initiative helps the youth with the confidence, public speaking skills and much more.  The young people are supported and guided by the Aġenzija Żgħażagħ youth workers.

“It’s a dream come true”- Carl Grech

The young people meet once a week in the evening, for two hours to plan, prepare and record the programme. They enjoy expressing themselves and discussing about anything they like. You can listen to one of the programmes following this link here
