Media Village

2014 will see the launch of a new social enterprise in Colwyn Bay called Media Village @ The Laundry Studios to provide the very first commercially run television/film studio facility in Conwy County, producing high quality content for a variety of broadcast uses. The enterprise will also offer a range of educational workshops and training opportunities delivered by the professional facilitation team at Media Village.

In addition Media Village @ TLS will provide a professional environment offering ‘real world’ work experience and supported employment opportunities to local young people who are looking to transition from further education into the creative industries. A key aspect of this new initiative is to develop a range of exciting employment opportunities for the local community.

Utilising their existing and new industry links, they will endeavour to provide a service and facility that will support the growing trend towards broadcast production/digital media and regionality – which means young people will no longer have to go without accessing creative industries training and work experience because they can not afford to move to a city environment to do so.
