A channel completely dedicated to enabling young people to share their lives
from their perspective, with the wider community.
‘Often it is those we least expect to have an opinion, who actually offer the most thought provoking and challenging perspective on the world.’ – MTR
Mouth That Roars (MTR) is Youth Media Organisation which was set up with the sole purpose of training young people in film production who wouldn’t ordinarily have access to media resources.
MTR enables young people who are misrepresented, a space to be heard and a medium in which they can voice their thoughts and feelings. Youth work practice and Children’s Rights underpins
MTR’s approach. ‘You have the right to reliable information from the mass media from all over the world. Television, radio and newspapers should provide information that you can understand and should not promote materials that could harm you.’ (Article 17, UNCRC)
MTR encourages active participation and cultural exchange through the process of film making. Producing films made by young people, encouraging them to challenge mainstream opinion, highlighting their own perspective. Reviewing and critically analysing their worlds and others, and using these skills, alongside film skills, to produce informed media.
