Unity Sisters is partnering with Jambo! Radio to deliver confidence and public speaking skills to our members. The project has been running from January 21st to March 31st and includes training sessions with the staff of Jambo! Radio.
This project aims to engage unity sisters members in interviews and storytelling to share their experiences and the work that we do. Unity Sisters will share all content (interviews and videos) via social media to reach a wider audience.
Following a highly successful pilot project in collaboration with UpHub/Rags to Riches (Govanhill Baths Community Trust), we established a formal partnership with Rags to Riches to deliver weekly facilitated sessions on creating jewellery out of recycled plastic.
The 12 sessions will take place via Zoom on Wednesdays. All activities will be delivered by community artists and craftspeople working with Rags to Riches to disseminate information and techniques on reusing, recycling, and upcycling materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill.
The artists will also act as mentors developing skills amongst the Sisters to cascade the knowledge and techniques to other participants, ensuring the project’s sustainability after it finishes.
All members will receive £20 data vouchers to assist with data access fees.
