Engaging Stories for Local Radio

Friday, September 20, 2013

This 3-part (12-hour) workshop will introduce you to the art of creating stories with sound. You'll learn to tune your ears to the world around you and to capture and integrate these sounds to form an aural narrative. Through listening exercises and discussions, we'll explore sound as a vivid means of eliciting emotion, of reconstructing events and memories, and of creating spaces for personal reflection and action. Workshop participants will learn the basics of radio production including interviewing, recording, editing, mixing, and writing for the ear. By the end of the workshop, participants will have created a short audio piece of their own, intended for broadcast through Human Rights Radio on WHDD/WLHV 88.1FM, our local NPR station.

This workshop will meet on three (3) consecutive Fridays (September 20, 27, & October 4) from 12:00-4:00PM in the Meeting Room on the 2nd floor of the Campus Center.

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED, as space is limited.  This workshop is open to the entire Bard community, however the Center for Civic Engagement and the Human Rights Project are currently recruiting students to be part of a joint radio project on local elections for WHDD/WLHV. This workshop is mandatory for students who sign up to be part of this project.

To register, please write an email to instructors Danielle Riou ( and Mia Lobel  ( with a sentence or two about your interest in this workshop and what you hope to learn from it, and what (if any) recording equipment you may be bringing to class.  You will receive an email with further instructions once you have been admitted to the workshop.

Time: 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
