The Clydesider team will be shining a spotlight on Dumbarton West this autumn.
And we’re looking for local poets, photographers, writers, creatives and people who care about their neighbourhood to get involved.
Our Community Media Spotlight will be a chance for people from Castlehill, Brucehill, Westcliff and Westbridgend to share their positive news stories, with the wider community.
The sessions will include taster workshops in photography, interview techniques, story-writing, creative story-telling, video vox pops and design for social media.
Participants will work with our team to plan a major feature section for a future issue of Clydesider to showcase the interesting individuals, inspiring organisations and local issues in Dumbarton West.
And when the magazine is published, we will provide the community with 500 copies to get their local news direct to the doors of local people.
The project is open to anyone living or working in Dumbarton West. No equipment or previous experience is needed, just a passion for your local community.
We have sign-up sheets in the Phoenix Centre in Castlehill and at the Corra Foundation office in Leven Valley Enterprise Centre, alternatively email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a space.
This project is part of an initiative set up by Dumbarton West Action group and funded by the Corra Foundation.
