Moving Audio: A Night of Radio Exchange
Co-presented with Stockholm University for the Arts
352 Onderdonk Ave
UnionDocs is delighted to partner with the Stockholm University for the Arts for a night of NYC radio appreciation hosted by the incredible Lu Olkowski.
We’ve invited a set of emerging audio artists in the RADIO MASTERS PROGRAM at the University to select some of their favorite contemporary audio work being born and produced in NYC that has moved them in their own practices to build out a program, conversation and international radio night of radio exchange here at UnionDocs.
We’re lucky to have multidisciplinary artist and creator of the hit series Appearances (Mermaid Palace), Sharon Mashihi joining to share some excerpts from their respective work and the thinking and intentions behind these chosen moments. Joel Lovell, Executive Editor at Pineapple Street will also join to discuss his award-winning editing work on podcasts like Wind of Change, This American Life and more.
We’ll be discussing and sharing some of the key insights and methodologies from the making of – from the early ideas stage, to personal artistry, reporting and beyond!
It’s a celebration of all the amazing work made here at the center of the Podcast universe, and an opening up of how this work travels to audiences around the world. We invite the audio community across the city to convene on this night as a way of building exchange across the pond and around the city.
The night will include guest speakers: Lu Olkowski, Sharon Mashihi and Joel Lovell.
See you there!
