Podcasting & Interviewing
If you’re an aspiring journalist, creative or content-maker (or just have an idea for a binge-worthy podcast), you’ll want to check out these workshops.
Marc Fennell (The Feed, triple j, Radio National) will share his top five tips for creating content people will want to tune into. And whether you’re filming, livestreaming or podcasting; the key to great content is a great interview. Marc has interviewed countless celebrities and cultural figures, and in his second class he’ll teach you how to conduct a compelling interview.
Sunday 22 July. Tickets $40, available here.
Whether you’re into YouTube, Twitch or Mixer – or new to livestreaming altogether – this masterclass will provide practical tips on making engaging content and reaching new audiences.
One of Australia’s favourite video game streamers, Bajo, will host a masterclass on creating livestream content. How do you promote yourself and your work? What are some of the strategies popular streamers used to get where they are? This will help you get ready to start your own livestream or make your existing livestream even better.
Sunday 22 July. Tickets $25, available here.
Build your own robot
Have you always wanted your very own robot space sidekick to assist you on those crazy space adventures? Here’s your chance to create and build your new friend, with servo motors to help bring your friend to life. Amie will walk you through what servo motors are and how to use them, as well as bringing new dimensions to 3D printing in creative builds. No sweat, you don’t need to know anything about programming, but it’s probably best if you feel comfortable to work with soldering irons and resistors to join in this fun workshop. Start planning that space adventure!
This workshop is delivered in partnership with MOD., Australia’s leading future-focused museum, provoking new ideas at the intersection of science, art, and innovation.
Wednesday 18 July. Tickets $30 including pizza (and your robot), available here.
