Chapel FM was asked to be part of the “Together We are Stronger” project run in partnership between Leeds City Council and the national organisation Building a Strong Britain Together.
We were happy to be part of something that seeks to combat the divisions we feel in our society today. As Councillor Debra Coupar explains:
“We face the same challenges as the rest of the country, including from those who seek to divide our communities from one another and demean the contribution of others to our city. The pride, passion and energy shown by our young people and demonstrated in these videos is the perfect response to these type of views and arguments.”
We asked Cristiana to be filmed as part of the project. Cristiana was part of our Next Generation training project for young people and now runs her own radio show “That Sunday!”. You can listen again to any of her shows below, but first-off watch the video that explains a little about Cristiana and what she has been doing at Chapel FM.
Cristiana moved to the UK from Portugal in 2007 and feels that Leeds has shaped who she is today. Through her work at Chapel FM she hopes to help showcase the sounds of Leeds’ many communities as well as provide a platform for them to talk about what is important to them…
