Alpha Boys’ School Seeking Funding for a Studio and Media Lab
The Alpha Boys’ School in Kingston, Jamaica is seeking funding for a studio and media lab to be constructed on the campus of the historic school.
Here’s what it’s all about: kickstarter.com/projects/alphaboysschoolradio/ and what they have to say about it:
This Kickstarter campaign seeks to raise the funds needed to complete construction and be operational by August 2014.
It’s really quite simple: We have to build a studio and production facility for Alpha boys to learn and use.
Currently, the Alpha Boys’ School Radio exists only as a fully automated online 24/7 radio station. With the support of Seton Hall University, and WXGR Radio in the USA, ABSR has started to acquire the equipment necessary for an on-air studio at the school.
This Kickstarter campaign will support the construction of the studio in an existing building Alpha set aside for training in music and vocations linked to music.
Specifically, this campaign will underwrite the cost of preparing the room for live broadcasting and vocational training, installing the equipment and purchasing the programming to run on them.
If we can reach our stretch goals, the campaign will also build workstations for graduating a generation of new musical ambassadors trained audio production.
