The RadioActive 2015 Spring Workshop
In this fun, rigorous and hands-on workshop, youth ages 16-18 learn about journalism, audio recording, audio editing, interviewing, writing for broadcast, and speaking on the air. During the workshop, the six participants will work collaboratively to create feature radio stories on topics of their choice that will be published on KUOW.org and shared at a public listening party! Best of all, RadioActive participants have the chance to amplify their voices by telling true stories about their communities, and the topics that are important to them.
RadioActive’s 2015 Spring Workshop starts on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 and ends on Thursday, April 30, 2015. Workshop meetings are held every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00-7:00pm at KUOW’s studios at 4518 University Way NE in Seattle’s University District. We also have all-day workshops on Saturday February 14th, Tuesday February 17th, and Saturday April 18th.
For completing the program, students will receive a $375 stipend. RadioActive provides snacks for students during the workshop, and bus tickets as needed. Youth who complete the program receive a 1-year subscription to Adobe’s Creative Cloud software suite, and are eligible to apply for a four-year college scholarship provided by the Adobe Foundation. Graduates of this workshop have the opportunity to stay involved as a RadioActive Advanced Youth Producer.
You can find more information and applications at kuow.org/radioactive. Admission to this workshop is selective – youth apply by pitching a story and go through an interview process before being accepted. Please pass this opportunity on to youth you know who are excited to tell stories and have their voices heard!
Applications are due TODAY — by 11:59 p.m.
