Special broadcast: Collaborative Radio Project
May 4, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFREE
Since March 2015, Multicultural Arts Victoria has worked in partnership with PBS 106.7FM and radio presenter and producer Madeleine Macfarlane to deliver an audio documentary and storytelling program with emerging, refugee and asylum seeker communities in Melbourne. The program has enabled PBS to link to new voices, representing diverse musical styles, while providing these communities with an opportunity to share their own stories through the accessible medium of radio. The program delivered eight weeks of skills training in storytelling, sound, editing, broadcast law, recording technique and live radio presentation. Following the workshops, participants were linked one-on-one with professional radio makers from PBS, ABC RN and SYN FM, who guided and supported them to create their own radio story. On Monday 4 May from 1pm to 3pm, participants will take over the regular programming of All Our Stories to present their pieces and tell the tales behind the stories. Hear this special broadcast online now. A mix of personal narrative and documentary, the pieces draw on experiences of migration, the importance of music in new homelands, tales of local success, and soundscapes that will transport you amongst the cows, children and traditional song of the Ethiopian countryside.
