Greensand Country Landscape Partnership and Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership (MCVRP) are looking to commission a skilled individual or collective of artists to create a listening piece to celebrate Greensand Country and MVCRP.
The piece will celebrate the stories, landscape and heritage shared on the journey from Bedford to Bletchley, with a particular focus on the journey from Millbrook to Bow Brickhill.
The Radio Producer will use recorded living memory, local voices, content from local artists and archive material to produce a creative and engaging listening piece. Whilst accompanying those who travel the line for work and pleasure, the piece should also inspire remote listeners to explore Greensand Country and to journey along the Marston Vale Line.
The producer will be supported in their process by a team of local volunteer researchers who have received training in archiving, historical research and oral history. Collected Oral History interviews will be available to use with this piece.
The producer will also have the opportunity to meet the volunteers (remotely) at the beginning of the project to
help shape the research journey and best serve the producer’s creative vision.
Those interested should apply by 5pm, Monday 1 March, 2021.
