BRO Cast

Piloting a system of digital community broadcasting as a means of raising awareness, changing society and community development.

The project aims to pilot a system of community digital broadcasting as a means of raising awareness, changing society and community development. In one area, Bro Ffestiniog, a number of enterprises have come together to work together in the form of a network of social enterprises and businesses under the umbrella of one company, Cwmni Cymunedol Bro Ffestiniog.
Organizations and enterprises include Seren, Antur Stiniog, CellB / Gwallgofiaid, Barnados, Ysgol Y Moelwyn, Transition, Pengwern Cymunedol, Deudraeth Cyf, GISDA, Opra Cymru and more. Over the period of the pilot the project will:
