For the first time, The Next Generation Radio Project, in partnership with the Native American Journalists Association, Native Public Media, and Southern California Public Radio, will lead NextGenRadio: Indigenous, a 5-day digital-first workshop centering Indigenous stories and storytellers.
The project, scheduled for March 14-19, is all-remote due to the pandemic, and selected participants will report from their area. The project is seeking Indigenous, early career professionals (less than 5 years experience) for an immersive training opportunity to learn more about podcasting, narrative audio storytelling, radio reporting, and visual journalism.
There is no cost to selected participants. See past NextGenRadio projects here.
Indigenous journalists seeking to improve their digital and multimedia storytelling, audio engineering, and graphic design or illustration skills should apply. This project is open to early professionals in tribal and mainstream newsrooms, and is designed to enhance coverage of Indigenous affairs with Indigenous voices.
Project participants, paired with a more experienced partner and advisor throughout the workshop, will find and produce their own multimedia story. Applications are due by midnight, EST Feb. 20. *Those who may be experiencing trouble with power etc. due to winter storms in parts of the U.S. may contact NAJA about deadline flexibility at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
