YH partners with the BBC

Posted by on May 23, 2012 in Blog, Journalism, Media, Mediorite, New Media, Photography

This summer Poached Creative and YH World will be working with the BBC Radio 1 and Radio 1Xtra Academy to help young people gain hands-on experience in writing, graphic design, photography, illustration and social media. Our journalism sessions are part of an exciting programme of broadcasts, celebrity appearances, Q&As and workshops at the Hackney Picturehouse from 1 to 22 June.

Young people will get the chance to interview the talent, write for real publications and have their work promoted to a huge audience in the run up to Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend. They’ll be working with professionals from Grime Daily, the Daily Star, the Hackney Gazette and more. Find out more on the Radio 1 Academy website.
