Reporters from LSLive are preparing to report at Leeds Lights Switch-On 2010! The LSLive crew will be catching the buzz from the crowd at this years event which kicks off at 7pm Thursday 18 November. Some of the reporters will be given backstage access and will meet the celebreties involved in the evening’s festivities. This year’s roll call of famous peeps at the event includes Shayne Ward, McFly, Kelly Brazil and Leeds very own Demeanour (winners of Breeze Has Talent).
Anyone interested in becoming an LSLive reporter should email email@example.com . You just need to be aged between 13 – 19 and living in Leeds.
Leeds student Lucy Cheseldine has blogged about her work experience as a young writer in Leeds over at the Guardian Leeds blog.
Lucy has worked for the Mediafish, the Find Your Talent supported Leeds Young People’s Film Festival and has presented her own culture pieces on Radiowaves’ LsLive channel. You can check out the links here.
LS Live is a project run by Radiowaves and funded by Find Your Talent, giving young people the chance to report on events in their city. Radiowaves is the leading safe website for children and young people to broadcast their videos, podcasts and blogs, connect with others and improve digital literacy skills.
Next week Radiowaves will be taking a group of LSLive reporters to Leeds’ Ice Cube – the hugely popular ice skating rink in Millennium Square that is the largest open air rink the UK. Radiowaves will be training reporters in the run up to the Leeds Young People’s Film Festival and Breeze events later this year.
LS Live reporters take part in broadcast training workshops and are given their own page on the LS Live Radiowaves station. Reporters are supplied with regular newsletters (keeping them informed of cultural events around Leeds) and can film events on video, interview the public and take photographs. They are also taught how to edit and upload their own content after recording.
In November last year Radiowaves worked alongside a group of young people to create video footage of Leeds’ Lightnight event. The project is a key strand to the Leeds pathfinder, encouraging young people to comment on their cultural experiences and become active audience members and participators.

Radiowaves will be working with LS7 Results Carnival Group to create a new young people’s culture blog between Summer 2009 and Spring 2010. The online channel is being developed for young people to report on events, music, art and performance in the city. Over the next couple of months the group hopes to cover events including Leeds West Indian Carnival and Breeze On Tour. Once the blog is up and running there will be further Find Your Talent opportunities for other groups to take part and become part of the reporting team.
