Polly Anderson, East Devon District Council community development worker, said:
“I would like to thank Media Box and the Phoenix Arts Centre, together with Phonic FM, for giving the young people of Exmouth, free of charge, the opportunity to be involved in this powerful and innovative cutting edge arts project, which is often only easily accessed by those living in cities.
“The young people in the East Devon deserve to have opportunities like this to be inspired, to be given a platform from which they can be heard and to feel part of a bigger picture.”
