Saffron team up with Noods for 8 week radio production & broadcasting course


Bristol-based music tech initiative Saffron are teaming up with local radio station Noods to host a beginner’s course in radio production and broadcasting for marginalised genders.

Taking place across eight weeks this summer, the course will provide eight women and non-binary people in the city with the tools, confidence and space to develop their own idea for a radio show. At the end of the programme, participants will take part in an eight-hour takeover day on Noods, each one presenting their own one-hour live show.

The sessions will be run weekly, with teaching and mentoring provided by Noods’ residents Manami and Tilly. Areas of focus include show planning, recording and editing, marketing, presenting and interviewing. 

In line with Saffron’s aims to advance gender equality in music tech spaces, the course is centred around building a safe and welcoming environment for women and non-binary people to up-skill and develop. It also marks the first instalment of Noods’ new education offshoot NOODS LEVELS CIC, which seeks to provide opportunities for young creatives.

Tickets are priced at £145, but free and discounted places are available for those this poses a barrier to.
