Audiocraft will take place in Sydney, Australia, on March 5, 2016. It is a conference for podcasters, radiomakers, and storytellers to come together to talk, listen, and learn about making great stories with sound.
Audiocraft is the first initiative in Australia to bring together producers from the public, community, and independent radio and podcast sectors. Some of them will lead practical workshops and discussions. There will be an exploration of narrative techniques, podcasting nuts and bolts, creative sound design, the rules of making good radio, and when to break them. The purpose is to harness the creative energy and excitement around audio storytelling and build a stronger community of producers across Australia.
Tickets are available now on the Audiocraft website. The early-bird tickets have sold out, but the main round tickets and concession tickets are still available. The Audiocraft conference will take place at Redfern’s 107 Projects, in Sydney, Australia, on March 5, 2016.
