MONTHLY MULTIMEDIA MAGAZINE SEEKS VOLUNTEER REPORTERS
Waveney & Blyth Arts is looking for volunteer reporters for a new monthly multimedia magazine.
The organisation would like to hear from anyone over sixteen who would like to have a go..
Thanks to an Awards for All grant from the Big Lottery Fund, reporters will get free training from media professionals, and free use of state of the art equipment, to make their own TV/video, radio/audio, photographic, and written magazine features.
The web magazine will carry nine multimedia features each month.
One feature will be about a creative organisation, like a touring theatre company, that works throughout the Waveney and Blyth valleys.
The other eight will be about creative organisations based in or around the eight towns of Diss, Harleston, Bungay, Beccles, Lowestoft, Great Yarmouth, Halesworth and Southwold.
So if you would like to try your hand at video or radio production, photography, or journalism, this is your chance.
To find out more email email@example.com or ring Jan on 01986 895227.

Reading ‘John Sell Cotman 1782-1842′ edited by Miklos Rajnai (SBN 0-906969-19-0, Arts Council and Herbert Press, 1982), I came across this passage in a letter written by Cotman to Frances Cholmeley, 13.April.1812: “I cannot call it paradise for I have no authority sacred or profane that introduce ships of any kind nto that region of delight…. My small garden leads me on to the road (Southtown Road) …Then , a green meadow, then the view along the banks of which, directly before my house, lies the condemned vessels of every nation, rigged and unrigged in the most picturesque manner possible. Then, our merchant vessels from an Indiaman, Greenlandman, to a collier pass and repass every ebb and flow of the tide. From my house…we reach the sea in about 3/4 of a mile, on which rides at times the Navy dimly moved in view. Today at sea a frigate and an open brigg came to anchor. In short I have never saw so animated a picture as this spot affords, it is always changing, always new.” The river is not picturesque as it was - there are certainly no green meadows between Southtown Road and the river! – but it is still a dramatic scene as the workmanlike ships come and go, manoeuvring on these fast flowing waters with such apparent ease, and the mood constantly transformed in the ever-changing light.

On behalf of the Department for Education, Arts Council England is investing more than £171 million of funding between August 2012 and March 2015 in a network of music education hubs across England . ACE will identify hubs through an open application process, which opened 25 November 2011. Music education hubs will ensure that every child aged 5-18 has the opportunity to sing and learn a musical instrument, as well as perform as part of an ensemble or choir. It will also allow young people to take their talent further – this might be through local ensembles, partnerships with nationally funded music organisations, including National portfolio organisations or through involvement in the Music and Dance Scheme.
Music education hubs will build on existing music services. A music education hub will be a collection of organisations working in a local area, to create joined up music education provision for children and young people, both in and out of school.
Hubs will be expected to form strong partnerships with local authorities, schools, music organisations, practitioners and communities to provide quality music education across the whole country – while delivering better value for money and greater accountability.
The assessment of applications will look closely at the following areas:
· leadership and governance
· a track record in high quality music education
· partnership working
· proposed music education hub delivery
· value for money
Applications opened 25 November 2011. The closing date is 17 February 2012 and successful applicants will be announced late April 2012.
