Empowering Southampton's black communities to make our positive and authentic stories more visible...⁠

Why? Last year, more than three quarters of black Southampton residents who took part in our media survey said they don't feel fairly and accurately represented in local news coverage.⁠

75% felt that local news coverage negatively portrayed black people, with the most saying that the media was more likely to cover stories about black people that were crime, violence or drugs related.⁠

When we asked how this made them feel, they said: “depressed”, “under-represented”, “sad, misunderstood and stereotyped”, “concerned for the younger generation”, and “unwanted, angry and frustrated”. 💔⁠

Our survey revealed a link between the type of coverage and people’s wellbeing: on seeing a positive local black story, respondents said it made them feel “fantastic and included”, “uplifted and proud”, and “inspired”.⁠

Our Version Media is equipping people with digital media skills to tell those positive stories ✊🏾

At the start of our Mobile Storytelling workshop two, learners discuss how their week of filming went. Busy mum & small business owner, Keesha, is making a video about juggling those two roles. Press play to hear her reason for not being able to capture one important aspect of her story!

We think other mumprenuers will relate!

Are you missing out on your free one-to-one "get into TV" session with Southampton-born actress, comedienne and TV host @TheVeronaRose?

If you applied for a free place on Verona's TV Actor Starter Pack workshop, an event supported by Our Version Media, please read on! Two of you haven't responded to our email so might be about to miss out...

Sadly, Verona had to cancel the workshop, planned for later this month, but for a great reason - she landed a fantastic new TV role (details to be revealed)!

As well as ticket holders being refunded, Verona has offered them AND bursary/free place applicants a free one-to-one online session! We emailed the free place applicants at the start of August to let them know, but two haven't responded! If that's you, check your inbox, check your Junk folder, or drop us a DM! Verona's excited to meet you!

Today is the first Saturday in three weeks that we're not with this awesome group of young people! They've completed our two-part Mobile Storytelling workshop and we really enjoyed spending the last two Saturdays with them.

You'll definitely be seeing more of them - as part of the international The Agency programme and Hampshire's organisation Energise Me they're creating social enterprises in their neighbourhoods to tackle local issues. And we taught them mobile journalism and digital media skills so they can tell their stories!⁠

Young people making positive changes in Southampton - WE LOVE TO SEE IT 🙌🏾🙌🏾⁠

FANTASTICALLY GREAT WOMEN WHO CHANGED THE WORLD

The world premiere of a brand new kickass-pirational pop musical will burst to life at MAST Mayflower Studios from 6 - 20 November as the Fantastically Great Women take to the stage to tell their stories.

Join our inquisitive heroine Jade as she breaks away from her class to take a peek behind the scenes at the not yet open Gallery of Greatness in the local museum. Along her journey she is surprised to meet the original and incredible Wonder Women: Frida Kahlo, Rosa Parks, Amelia Earhart, Marie Curie, Emmeline Pankhurst to name just a few.

From explorers to artists, scientists to secret agents, hear the stories of some of history’s strongest mothers, sisters and daughters; all independent icons who really did change the world.

Celebrated dramatist Chris Bush and Number 1 hit songwriter Miranda Cooper (Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue) adapt suffragette descendent Kate Pankhurst’s award-winning picture book, produced for the stage by the Company that brought you the smash hit musical ‘SIX’.
