What is shmu?

Station House Media Unit (shmu), established as a charity in 2003, is one of the core cultural organisations in Aberdeen, and is at the forefront of Community Media development in Scotland, supporting residents in the seven regeneration areas of the city in radio and video production, traditional and on-line publications, music production and digital inclusion. The organisation also supports other disadvantaged communities, both geographic and communities of interest, with an employability and training arm and a programme for offenders, both pre and post release.

Our building may be closed during the current coronavirus period, but we're still working, supporting and creating (albeit remotely) and are aware that, as a community service, we have an important role to play regarding information sharing and community support, see our Tell Us campaign for more.

shmu's Summer of Fun 2021

“Best summer ever, shmu is awesome, I can’t wait to go back”  - particpant

Thanks to funding from Cashback for Communities, the Fairer Aberdeen Fund and YouthLink Scotland we were able to offer a dynamic summer programme to young people aged 11-18 living in our regeneration areas.  

Spanning the school holidays, we offered introductions to filming, radio broadcasting, making music and outdoor activities both in the sunshine and under canvas (when the weather was less favourable), where young people learned to connect with and care about our surroundings and environment.
