SYN Nation Project
SYN Media’s SYN Nation project (previously National Youth Media Project) is an initiative designed to offer broadcasting and media making opportunities for a diverse range of young people from around Australia.
Working in collaboration with local community radio stations from non-metropolitan regions, SYN provides young people with guidance, training and ongoing support in creating media content for local and national broadcast on SYN’s digital radio station, SYN Nation: a single destination for listeners to hear diverse content produced by young people from all over the country. SYN Nation is at the intersection of the local and the national; facilitating youth engagement in local community radio stations and simultaneously providing audiences with more dynamic, interesting and fresh content from Australia’s next wave of media makers.
Since the launch of the project in early 2014, SYN has worked with several regional and interstate community radio stations; Bay FM in Byron Bay, Edge Radio in Hobart, Gippsland FM in Traralgon, 3Way FM in Warrnambool, 2XX FM in Canberra and Wangki Yupurnanupurru Radio in Fitzroy Crossing, WA – with even more on the horizon!
The project is continuously evolving and expanding. If you want to get involved, email [email protected].
