Homely Planet is managed by Beyond Skin and believes that community involvement a ownership is a key area in the development of radio broadcasts. We develop radio projects in Northern Ireland with global partners. Some of these projects form part of Beyond Skin’s workshop projects & outreach programs.
How we work
Most of our project ideas come from the diverse team of artists and volunteers who work with Beyond Skin. We work closely with local councils, community groups and other organisations to develop our radio projects.
How you can do it
With our extensive and extending network, the possibility of you having your own radio programme/broadcast is within reach! No previous radio experience is necessary!. All you need and all we seek is passion and enthusiasm.You can learn and develop existing and new skills! We can guide you and offer help and advice through our network.
Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
Partnership projects involves creating, sharing and broadcasting programmes & radio projects with other organisations/groups on a local and global platform. If you have radio podcast in the area of Culture then contact us as we may be able to broadcast as part of our stream content!
