News/November 2014

We’re thrilled to announce that we are Silver winners in this year’s Lovie Awards with My Neck Of The Woods, the young people’s live-streamed broadcast project we ran on the streets Manchester in September 2013.

The project achieved joint top place in the Internet Video: Events & Live Broadcasts category of the pan-European Internet awards.

In My Neck Of The Woods three participants asked and answered questions, filming aspects of their daily lives and favourite places in their local area. Online participants could choose and flit between the live-streamed stories and interact with the people filming on the ground.

My Neck Of The Woods was created by Blast Theory in partnership with the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Truth about Youth programme, supported by the Co-operative Foundation.

My Neck Of The Woods is part of Digital Voices, a collaboration between Blast Theory, The Patching Zone and Translocal with the support of the cultural programme of the European Union.
