South West Arts Inc and THE END FM were successful in their NSW Government Creative Capital funding application, which will be used to create a mobile broadcast and digital production facility.

The mobile facility will become a multi-purpose, media, training and digital production centric facility, all contained inside a large commercial van that can travel throughout the region’s communities.

It will expand the broadcast capability of THE END FM to allow young people in regional communities to be media educated and broadcast on the platform. Additionally, it will allow the region’s musicians and aspiring music producers access to a quality recording studio that can come to their community.

It will provide training facilities that can engage young people with hands-on experience trying their hand at or pursuing careers in the media and communications. THE END FM’s Interim Station Manager Olivia Duffey said THE VAN Project has enormous potential to develop the creative industry locally.
