Inviting Cebuano youth to a workshop on "Youth Radio Dramas for Peace"

Cebu, Philippines (29 July) -- The Probe Media Foundation, Inc. (PMFI) is inviting Cebuano youth aged 15-20 years old to apply as participant to a workshop on "Youth Radio Dramas for Peace," that will be held in Cebu on August 21-22, 2008.

The applicants must be a part of an organization or club and prior training in radio is not required. The organizers will shoulder the meals, provide for the workshop materials and training. Participants must be able to shoulder their own transportation to and from the venue in Cebu City.

Deadline of submission of application is August 1, 2008 and accepted participants shall be notified by August 8.

According to PMFI, the 2-day live out workshop provides opportunities for young Cebuanos of established organizations to increase their awareness and understanding on issues of peace and understanding, specifically on Muslim and Christian religion and culture in order to produce creative radio dramas on the subject.

In cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and Radio Mindanao Network (RMN), the 2-day workshop will be composed of lectures, discussions, sharing and radio storytelling techniques.

By the end of two-days, the participants would have produced short radio drama on the issues of peace, youth on Muslims and Christians.

They will also help professional radio drama producers of Radio Mindanao Network plan a 50-episode that would be aired in October and November this year.

PMFI said that radio is one of the most effective means of communication because it reaches a large and diverse audience. Radio drama series targeted towards the youth on Muslim and Christian issues has the potential to change stereotypes and misconceptions to bring about understanding.

Radio also creatively allows the audience to become aware of the effects of discrimination and to realize that both Christianity and Islam are religions of peace – in an entertaining manner, PMFI added.
