June 20, 2018 All Day
Texas Folklife invites all community members interested in radio and folklore in the greater Austin area to participate in the Stories from Deep in the Heart Summer Institute, a one-week audio documentary production workshop. During the Summer Institute, participants will work in groups with professional media producers and folklorists to produce short public radio-style audio documentaries on community traditions. Participants will tour KUT 90.5, Austin’s local NPR affiliate, where they will also record narration for their documentaries using KUT’s state-of-the-art production studio.
On the last day, participants will premiere their stories for their peers and the public. The workshop costs $200, with scholarships available based on financial need. Austin-area educators and administrators are automatically entered to receive a scholarship for attendance, and the workshop counts toward professional development hours. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2018.
