Soundart Radio – Caroline Lakin talks to young people about her visit to Tunisia

In August 2011, Soundart Radio 102.5fm ran a summer radio club for local children to learn broadcasting skills. Each day we focused on a different theme. On our ‘Journeys’ day the children made books about a journey of their own to talk about on air and also interviewed a guest. Their guest, Caroline Lakin, has been a frequent visitor to Tunisia for several years, where, with her partners in the South Devon Multicultural Forum, she has run creative workshops in many different settings, as well as bringing items and stories back home to share with Devon people.

Since the Arab Spring uprisings earlier this year, Caroline visited refugees from Libya on the Libya/Tunisia border and spent time with them making books, bags and more from found materials, and recording interviews for broadcast. In this interview, children aged 8-11 discuss her experiences in Tunisia and listen to recordings made there.
