RADIOZILLA!

Inspired by HiveNYC’s Radio Rookies, Regent Park Focus and Facing History Ourselves collaborated to produce youth-led internet radio series, school curriculum guide, audiovisual slideshows using web-maker tools, and a project documentary. Working with 5 different TDSB high schools, the project will be contributed by 20 students in the first phase.

RadioZilla aimed to work with students from across the Greater Toronto Area to create social justice-oriented radio segments for broadcast on Radio Regent. Over the course of six weeks, the youth-led audio documentaries allowed participants to work together to interview, edit, and tell important stories on critical topics such as identity, bystander behaviour, religion, and standing up for others.
