This week on Wavelength we tackled some massive stories including a piece on LGBTIQ wellbeing, the announcement of Adelaide as a UNESCO City of Music, an interview with local diver Sam Mills, and a look into the new cultural phenomenon of online trading groups.
Adelaide’s live music scene has really taken off over the last couple of years – and on Saturday, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization honoured our city by selecting us as City of Music. Zane had a chat to Arts Minister Jack Snelling, Sarah Bleby from the Adelaide Festival Centre, Lisa Bishop the Music SA General Manager, and musician Michael Zabolocki, from SKIES about how this will impact our local music industry.
Abbey spoke to Sam Mills, a local SA diver who has recently qualified for the World Cup in Rio, and is on track to represent Australia in the next Olympic Games.
Just about everyone has heard of the Facebook group Trade*laide that has taken our local social media community by storm.The membership has really taken off over the past year, with over 11,000 members joining the page. We wanted to know why people love to get into trading, so Callum had a char to a self-confessed trading addict.
Erin spoke to Dylan from Melbourne’s JOY 94.9, and Heath from the Queer Connections project of the Mental Health Fellowship of South Australia (MIFSA) about the difficulties of coming out as a young person. They both shared with us their stories and experiences, and give some sage advice and words of support for anyone who is questioning their identity, or is finding themselves a target of discrimination.
