Sustainable Breakfast 2014

The Sustainable Breakfast Series at Friends of the Earth Food Cooperative was dedicated to taking the SUS out of Sustainability. Held from 24-28 March 2014 the broadcasts were live all week from the Friends of the Earth Food Coop on Smith Street in Collingwood. We were joined by many of the volunteers and campaigners at FoE and other guests working towards creating a sustainable future. The Sustainable Breakfast Series was supported by the City of Yarra

Women Migrants’ Legal Information Project

This project was developed by the Victoran Women Lawyer’s justice committee in response to concern that migrant women are not reporting domestic violence because they don’t know their legal rights in Australia. The project has resulted in the development of 3 radio announcements airing on radio station 3CR’s Arabic language programs covering areas of relevant law: family, domestic violence and immigration law. Funded by a Victoria Law Foundation grant, managed by Satu Marjaana Aho.

CARLTON LIVE! poster

CARLTON LIVE! is a collection of voices and songs from the Carlton Housing Estate. Each voice has a story to tell about living in Carlton or coming to Australia or just about what is going on inside the mind of the songwriter. 

Many of the songs were recorded as part of the Carlton Musicians Course, staged in 2009 by 3CR Community Radio in partnership with the City of Melbourne’s Carlton Flats Arts Project. Featuring music by Ruth Rogers-Wright, Sekove Tui, Joseph Zammit and Mick Varney.

A Local History Grant helped 3CR to create audio tours of Melbourne’s social, activist and cultural local history. The tours are fact-based but also very personal, with tour guides describing why certain historical places, events and times have special meaning for them. The tours were also conducted as live walks with an audience as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2009.

The tours were broadcast on 3CR and are on line at the People's Tour website.

3CR volunteer Jane Curtis initiated the project. Nicole Hurtubise was the audio technician.

Three participants, Richard, Helen and Adam and 3CR staff

3CR ran a radio training project for a small group of people from the Doutta Galla Community Health Service. 3CR trainers Nicole Hurtubise, Michael Smith and Elena McMasters took the group through the steps of learning radio with the focus being the production of an audio segment each.
