Spotify and Audiocraft in partnership with Koori Radio invite aspiring podcasters who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander to apply for the Sound Up Bootcamp, a four-day residential podcasting workshop to be held in Sydney on November 26-29.
You don’t need to have any prior podcasting experience, just a voice (with something to say), a passion for the medium, and an eagerness to bring your idea to life. Ten people will be selected to attend, with expenses covered including travel and accomodation for those living outside of Sydney.
You'll learn about the art of podcasting, receive mentoring and practical experience, and meet with podcasting and radio greats. At the end of the week, three of the attendees will be awarded a cash grant and equipment to produce their podcasts.
The bootcamp will be facilitated by Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander radio producer Emily Nicol (a Koori Radio alumnus) with workshops presented by Brooke Boney, Allan Clarke, Rudi Bremer and more.
Entries close on October 29, 2018 at midnight.
You can apply directly from Kooriradio.com or if you have any questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0413 436 167.
