Making Airwaves Makes Radio Accessible
Ideas, stories, interviews and insights from adults who have an intellectual disability
Sydney radio station, Eastside FM 89.7, will be airing Making Airwaves July 7th at 6pm.
Making Airwaves is a Windgap Foundation initiative which allows adults who live with an intellectual disability to create their own half hour radio show. They share unique stories, ideas and experiences that allow the broader community to get an insight into their world. This will be the sixth Making Airwaves to air and is the first of its kind in Sydney.
Program support worker, Caroline Savransky, explains
“I have seen participants share stories that would otherwise never have been heard but are completely necessary for the community to know, the show gives them a voice and most importantly a chance to be heard.”
There are six to seven people partaking in each program, with a new group for every broadcast. Making Airwaves always welcomes new participants, volunteers and donations.
When: Tuesday, 7th of July, 6.30pm
Where: On Eatsisde Radio 89.7 FM
