Federica had the idea of setting up an Italian radio project a while ago.

Let’s say that, as with any good Italian wine (or cheese), the project took some time to mature.

Fede had to find the right people who believed in her dream as much as she did, and persuade them to join her in this adventure.



Radio VIBE is mainly an act of sharing:



Languages

Words

Stories

Cultures

Experiences

Smiles



It’s also a number of other things:



  1. It’s about believing that everybody has a story to tell.

  2. It’s a platform where you can listen to podcasts about interesting people.

  3. It’s our love for interviewing people while being inspired by their stories.

  4. It’s a way to talk about Italy, with Italian and non-Italian people.

  5. It’s how we talk about other cultures and countries, and show the many things we have in common.

  6. It’s about bringing people together while respecting each other’s diversity.

  7. It’s a little moment to enjoy some music together.

  8. It’s all about having fun while learning something new, basically.





These are Radio VIBE's goals (taken from our Constitution):



2.1 To promote cultural diversity, equality and racial harmony for the benefit of the public in Northern Ireland and in any other part of the world (‘the area of benefit’) by bringing people together from different backgrounds and by providing radio podcasts and by any other charitable means as the Trustees may determine.


2.2 To promote the Italian language and culture and other languages and cultures primarily, but not exclusively, by digital means.


2.3 To advance education in digital awareness through projects and training and assist people to communicate their stories on a digital platform.


2.4 To promote social inclusion for the public benefit in Northern Ireland and in any other part of the world by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society.


For the purpose of this clause ‘socially excluded’ means being excluded from society, or parts of society, as a result of one or more of the following factors: unemployment; substance abuse or dependency including alcohol and drugs; discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, belief, creed, sexual orientation or gender re-assignment; financial hardship; youth or old age; ill health (physical or mental); poor educational or skills attainment; relationship or family breakdown; crime (either as a victim of crime or an offender rehabilitating into society) or due to their social and economic circumstances.
