First of many Galway Tribal Radio @GTR_fm volunteer meet-ups planned in the Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture hub took place today!
Six dozens of volunteers ready to support the Comunity Radio project showed this evening to discuss possibilities with the project creator Gary Vaughan and others involved and community leaders as Mayor of City Galway Cllr. Frank Fahy.
As Gary said “This is the first real step towards the City having a truly free and independent media source run by the Community it serves.” The theme of the meeting was the radio as a non-for-profit, free & independent media, that’s mission is to empower, educate & entertain our culturally diverse city. Mayor Fahy supported the name of the community project stating Galway is known as the city of Tribes, but there is very few of us here who can trace their connection to Galway for more than 2-3 generations. “Including myself who can go back to 1640.” For mayor is creating of the community radio project today great way how to get people creating new Galway tribes from Poland, China and other countries to get involved in Galway on the way to the Capital of Culture 2020 and after.
