Arts and Culture Reporting in Immigrant Communities and Communities of Color

November 15 – 17, 2019, PRX Podcast Garage, Boston, Massachusetts

Applications are being accepted for a three-day intensive workshop on reporting on arts and culture in immigrant communities and communities of color for public radio, podcasts and online media. The workshop is designed to help journalists and journalism students improve their reporting and audio skills.

Deadline extended:  Apply by October 14, 2019. 

Led by veteran journalists from public radio and online media, this workshop is an introduction to broadcast and podcast journalism, including audio recording and production, story development, and pitching and writing for radio. Participants will have the opportunity present their story ideas to a panel of editors from leading news organizations.

Issues of representation and identity are being examined across the arts and pop culture, from museums re-evaluating their curatorial processes to theatre productions that challenge our notions of race and immigration, and opera and ballet companies exploring gender-fluid casting. At the same time immigrant reporters and journalists from communities of color continue to struggle to have their voices heard. This workshop will provide practical tools and networking opportunities to bring greater diversity and inclusion to public radio, podcasting and on-line media.

Who should apply? Journalists who cover immigrant communities and communities of color and journalism students interested in covering the arts and culture within those communities.

Presentations by:

  • Karen Frillmann, Executive Producer, WNYC’s Narrative Unit and Executive Producer, The Stakes podcast
