Participants announcement: end of June 2021

These workshops are designed to provide you with the knowledge, practical skills, and tools to produce your own podcasts, as well as knowledge of gender and sexuality, culture and history outside a Western/Eurocentric perspective. This workshop will cover audio storytelling basics, including concept, format, structure, the art of the interview (researching guests, forming questions, active listening, and how to prepare and conduct various interview types), sound-mixing, editing, distribution, and project sustainability. The workshops are suitable for those who have zero to basic knowledge yet have interests in podcasting. 

The selection criteria are your project’s conceptual potential, artistic originality, and logistical realizability. The applicants should also reflect on the visions of Imagining Queer Bandung and be willing to solidarize and create a safe space. We also aim for a well-balanced set of representations amongst the participants.
