Alastair, our new Project Manager
for THE END FM
Hello friends. Let me introduce myself. I'm Alastair, the newest addition to the South West Arts team.
My job is to help get our new youth radio station, The End FM broadcasting on the airwaves, and to give young people in the community a voice, opportunities, and the chance to create the radio/media they care about. I'm excited to be here in Deni and to be given the chance to help start a community radio station basically from scratch.
I'm also still learning about the area and the needs of the community. Rest assured, The End FM is going to shake up the radio landscape and be different from the current crop of stations being broadcast. Importantly, I want to know everyone's hopes and dreams from The End FM. If you're young or young at heart, my door is open for you to come and have a chat about your ideas. We're still moulding the clay so to speak and deciding who we want to be, so now is a great time to dream big and get involved. Hope to see you soon.
Olivia Duffey, our new Trainee Content and Training Coordinator
for THE END FM
Olivia started in the position at the end of February after spending two years as a journalist in print media in Deniliquin. My role at THE END FM is to be responsible for the overall quality and strategic direction of The End FM programming and content, as well as facilitate training programs for THE END FM youth members and the public.
I’m passionate about this region, something I’m able to integrate into this role, and am interested in the issues that affect it. I have been living in Deniliquin since 2012 after moving from the outer suburbs of Sydney and completed my secondary education at Deniliquin High School.
In my spare time, I like to volunteer, especially with the NSW Rural Fire Service, I am a member of various committees, and I love to make art via traditional methods and face painting.
I am looking forward to meeting even more people from across the South West region and in particular, the region's youth, to provide opportunities to explore the arts and give them a chance to train in the creative industries, media and radio sectors, and most importantly, give them a voice.
Come and see me at 122 End St to discuss your ideas or contact me at South West Arts on (03) 58817749 and give me any feedback you might have.
