Murray Arts | Beyond YOLO Regional Arts Fund Project Launched12.12.2018
Regional Arts Development Organisation Murray Arts have this week launched their podcast and Regional Arts Fund project Beyond YOLO. Supported by both the Victoria and NSW Regional Arts Funds, Beyond YOLO (You Only Live Once) unearths young people’s real-life stories of strength and resilience in the Border/North-East regions of NSW and Victoria.
Three individuals share their intimate experiences of true resilience. Listen below to Sheridan, Daniel and Tyson as they share their challenges, growth and strength as they shape their future.
Ep 1. Antifragile | Sheridan
Sheridan shares her brave story of losing touch with her mother and then reuniting with her 10 years later.
Ep 2. Generation Next | Daniel
Daniel shares his hopes and dreams of playing professional tennis, and the realities of making that dream come true.
Ep 3. Crossroads | Tyson
Tyson shares his journey of living with cystic fibrosis, and what that means as he heads into adulthood.
Local writers, producers, and storytellers Aimee Chan, Kate Rotherham, Rachel McNamara, Alison Plasto, Tony Grace, Forrest Dickinson and Henry Rotherham have worked with local young people to uncover stories of youth resilience and create this locally produced podcast series.
You can listen to Beyond YOLO on your favourite podcast player Spotify, Stitcher, YouTube or SoundCloud, and iTunes! Share it with your friends, family and/or peers, it’s a must-listen and wonderful insight into the lives of young people in the Murray Arts region.
