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.

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.
