191 Media Studio

We are a media studio which offer music and film making opportunities for Young People in Bournemouth. We have a highly skilled team of Youth Workers employed by Bournemouth Integrated Youth Service, who will facilitate and support Young People who want to take advantage of these well resourced facilities.

191 Media Studios are based at two Youth Centres.

Through experience and an understanding of Young People we have learned that multi media activities are something that fire the imagination. We have invested and developed these fantastic studios based on this, and the knowledge that great personal development can take place through the creative process. It gives Young People a voice and a means of expression that is tangible. Young People are often delighted with the work they produce, but for us as workers the most valuable development takes place as in the process of getting there.

Opportunities for pre and post production film making, songwriting, instrumental workshops, recording/production and performances all take place on regular sessions. See opening times. Young People get involved through attending both centres and often find themselves booking time in one of the studios. They also have access to our new online booking system.

If you are interested in multi media and feel you have something to say contact us or come to a session.

Other projects are planned for the near future including Gardening, Football Coaching and Refereeing and much more.
