Speak Up and Make Some Noise: A Radio Workshop for Durham Teens
September 29, 2007 (Section 1)
October 6, 2007 (Section 2)

Get involved—Speak Up and Make Some Noise

The Center for Documentary Studies and Youth Noise Network present an intensive one-day immersion into documentary storytelling and radio production. This workshop is offered exclusively for teenagers (ages 13–18) living in Durham County.

This workshop is mandatory for teens applying to participate in YNN. If you aren't interested in joining YNN, you are still welcome to apply to attend the workshop.

You'll learn hands-on skills in recording and digital audio editing; practice the art of storytelling; discuss why it's important for teens to make media; and produce a short audio piece with teens from all over Durham.

Recording equipment, computers, and editing software will be provided. No experience in audio production is required. All you need to bring is your lunch.

The workshop will be facilitated by Tennessee Watson, Youth Noise Network Coordinator; and Kim Arrington, Durham-based poet and educator.
