What is shmu Youth Media?

shmu offers an innovative programme of creative youth media activities aimed primarily at those living in the regeneration areas of Aberdeen. The Programme encourages young people (10-18yrs) to actively participate and engage with radio, film, music and magazine production, resulting in increased confidence, self-esteem and communication skills. Projects include the Youth Radio Project, a science and media initiative, Youth Journalism, an Into Film Club and the Speak Out radio project for P7 pupils.

During the COVID-19 period, staff are continuing to support participants to create media remotely.
