Application for participation in "Urban Folk: An audio storytelling workshop"
Please complete and we will respond by October 20th. There is no prior knowledge or experience required for this opportunity. Interested participants may include those who work in heritage and cultural organizations; educators and librarians; artists, actors and musicians; and anyone interested in community development and documentation. Applications will be reviewed for applicants' ability to commit to the dates and times for the workshop in addition to how the vision of each applicant fits within the goal of featuring a diverse range of folk artists with Radio Boise's coverage area.
My experience in audio production can best be described as:
Please take a few sentences to tell us about any audio storytelling, sound creation or journalism experiences you have that might lend itself to making you a good addition to the class.
Do you listen to podcasts or create podcasts already? If so, which ones and what interests you about them?
Do you have a laptop computer? (It is required for the workshop)
I am able to attend weekly classes on Wednesday evenings, 6-9pm, October 26 - December 6 (with one week free for Thanksgiving).
I would like to apply for a need-based scholarship to cover the $75 workshop fee.
Participants will be asked to identify a specific artist to feature in their piece, with the following criteria in mind. Folklore or folklife is defined as daily creative expressions that are perpetuated by a community or group of people that are related either by family, possibly religion, community, also through occupation. Examples of folk art created in and around urban spaces in the Treasure Valley include graffiti artwork, ethnic-based food traditions, and instrument makers, which are only but a few of the countless sources of creation under the folk umbrella. Artists profiled in the series will reside within Radio Boise’s geographic coverage area. With these guidelines in mind, if admitted into the class, you will be responsible for identifying the artist who will be the subject of your artist profile; however, class instructors do reserve the right to reject pitches that are inappropriate and/or not feasible. If you are unsure if your idea would be a good fit, specific questions can be sent to
for feedback prior to submitting your application.
A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided.
