Collaborative Podcasting While Physical Distancing
May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
We are living in an unprecedented time where we are being asked to isolate ourselves during the pandemic. This has been challenging and stressful for many, but has also given us some stillness to reflect on things that matter most to us in our busy world.
Stories are emerging for everyone: stories of helping vulnerable community members, personal coping mechanisms, grappling with unemployment, moments of self-discovery and the tension of sacrificing civil liberties due to a virus, which seemed far away not too long ago.
We invite you to share your personal story about the pandemic through the creation of a podcast mini series, with the guidance of TPL’s former Innovator in Residence, Amanda Cupido. The first day of this online program will give you the knowledge and tool recommendations for recording your story. Later in the week, we will reconvene online to take part in a listening party, where we will discuss, share and celebrate all the audio stories that were created.
Monday, May 11th 12:00 – 1:30 pm – Online Instructional Session
Friday, May 15th 12:00 – 1:30 pm – Online Podcast Listening Party
Amanda Cupido is an award-winning podcast producer and the author of Let’s Talk Podcasting: The Essential Guide to Doing it Right. She teaches audio storytelling at Seneca College’s School of Media and runs podcasting workshops and consultation sessions. She also built the branded podcast vertical for the digital content agency, MediaFace. Previously, she worked as a radio producer, reporter and news anchor at Newstalk 1010 CFRB.
This program is part of the Communities Create Initiative, which empowers Canadians to express themselves using creativity, to build their skills, and find human connection during this unprecedented time. Participants are invited to engage in a series of free online workshops sponsored by the Canadian creative community, to help them convey how they are feeling through a variety of different mediums, and then share their work online.
Registration is limited and specific instructions will be sent to the registrants one day prior to the class.
