University 'final project' in production exploring life of local Salfordian
12 February 2018
I am very excited to announce the full details of my latest radio documentary, the 'final project' of my BA Television and Radio degree at the University of Salford.
Exploring the life of local chef Stuart Fraser, 24, I will be capturing the story of Sourced in Salford, an award-winning community interest company which he founded in 2016.
Every Friday night at the Naz Community Hall on Great Clowes Street, they host supper club Dinner in Broughton for just £2 entry per person. The initiative works with FareShare, the UK's largest charity fighting hunger and food waste, to give back to the community in which Stuart grew up. I will also be exploring how he copes with Asperger’s syndrome and how this has had impact on his daily life.
Stuart has agreed to participate in a bid to raise awareness of his latest venture with Sourced in Salford. The Salford Lifestyle Centre Cafe and Bar will open in March 2018 after receiving funding from UnLtd’s Spaces4Change programme and will charge £2.50 for a special soup and sandwich meal deal.
I am really looking forward to producing this piece and can't wait to get started. The documentary will be released later this year.
