Citizen Journalism Workshop – Grow Your Radio Ears

Sunday April 28th at 3pm in the Carpenters Union Hall

Narrative audio storytelling mixes art, journalism, and documentary. This workshop will introduce you to the basic building blocks of nonfiction audio storytelling – scripting, scene, character, and natural sound. How can sound add dimension and texture to a narrative? What does it look like to interview someone, and to truly listen to them – not only to their words, but to the inflection and tone of their voice, and to weave it into a story in the most effective way? How can sound elicit emotion, memory, and place? What does it mean to listen to the world around us? Participants will turn into sound collectors, embarking on an audio scavenger hunt in the city of Butte to create a sound collage of the city, learning how to listen for good tape, while also learning the basic vocabulary and formats that audio storytelling can take.

This workshop is hosted by April Resident Katie Meyers in conjunction with DEAR BUTTE AND KBMF
