At Oasis we passionately believe that everyone should have the opportunity to discover, or re-discover, their potential regardless of background or circumstances.
The Oasis Media Launchpad is designed to inspire people, to raise aspirations and to develop and promote new talent and skills, focusing on music writing and production, digital, technology, podcasting and film.
We have aspirations to grow and develop this project so that we can prepare people for employment in the Media or Tech sector.
The Frank Hodge Podcast Studio.
We are extremely proud to offer the Frank Hodge Podcast Studio at the Bagnall in Chesham, named in memory of Frank Hodge. Frank was one of our long standing Trustees, representing the service user voice at Board level, he ran his own weekly alcohol support group in Wycombe, got very involved in our volunteer project, helping with recruitment and mentoring new volunteers. He was also a lovely and funny man, with a long and exciting career as BBC camerama . Frank planted the idea of the Media Launchpad with us and although he sadly passed before he saw it take shape – i am sure he will be pleased with the result.
We have called one of our podcasts th e “Lets Be Frank” podcast – where we aim to publish a range of different conversations and discussions. You can find our podcast on Spotify and other podc ast channels. Here is our most recent podcast with our Jon Martin interviewing.
