GRACE WILENTZ, Near FM’s Intercultural Coordinator talks to Noel McGuinness about the latest series of ‘Culture Shots’.
The aim of Culture Shots is to take a panel of eight people: Four Irish and four non-EU immigrants. The eight undertake a seven-week training course in community radio and intercultural media literacy that promotes equality and diversity.
Following the course, the panel create a series of 13 programmes based on democratically-chosen subjects.
The next programme will document the lives of undocumented immigrants working in Ireland. To call such people ‘Illegal Immigrants’ is a misnomer. People cannot, in and of themselves, be ‘illegal’. They can, however, be undocumented, which can create a whole world of financial and social difficulties – as many ‘undocumented’ Irish in the USA have found over the years.
