Destination Bradford – A Live, Interactive Podcast Celebrating the City’s Eastern European Community

Funded by Bradford Producing Hub, Destination Bradford is an opportunity for Polish and Ukrainian immigrants living in the city to come together and share stories about their experience of life in West Yorkshire.

Presented as a live, interactive podcast, Destination Bradford will feature a range of invited guests, ranging from first, second and third generation immigrants, and will look at what it means to be Eastern European living in the UK and how this has changed over the past hundred years. Alongside the invited guests, there will also be an opportunity for listeners to call in and share their own experiences and become part of the wider conversation.

Presented by writer Adam Hughes and artist Margot Przymerska, the show will utilise the popular Talkaoke format, which is an interactive talk-show that combines live in-person and online conversations. The aim of the podcast is to give a voice to one of the city’s most prominent immigrant groups and celebrate their stories and history. The show will also be an opportunity to preserve their stories and create a living audio-visual archive, which will serve as a resource for future generations of Bradfordians and beyond.

How to Get Involved

Destination Bradford is a free event, open to anyone who would like to share their personal story or who has an interest in the subject. The event will take place live on Zoom and will be streamed to Bradford Producing Hub Facebook. For those who do not have access to Zoom, then you will also be able to join the conversation via phone.

If you are interested in getting involved then please email destinationbrad@gmail.com with your details. Please note that the Talkaoke will be recorded and made public under Creative Commons License.
