Fancy making a podcast and radio show?
Would like to start a career in the sound and audio industry?
If so, this could be for you!
Get involved in an exciting new project, Unlocking Our Sound Heritage, and learn to research and edit audio recordings with Bristol Community FM (BCfm).
What is Unlocking Our Sound Heritage?
Unlocking Our Sound Heritage (UOSH) is a national project aiming to preserve and provide access to half a million of the nation’s rare and unique sound recordings.
To accomplish this huge task, ten sound preservation centres have been set up across the UK. Each centre will digitise and catalogue sound collections from their region. Bristol Archives is home to the UOSH hub for South West England.
Together with BCfm, UOSH needs help to make these digitised recordings available to the wider public. This is where you come in. Learn how to create a new podcast and radio show by selecting and editing these amazing old recordings.
What will I gain from taking part?
Join us online or in-person – your choice!
Both courses are the same, we’re just offering it two different ways to suit different needs.
Course 1 – Online (Zoom – laptop/computer with internet access required)
Course 2 – In-person (MShed and BCfm Studios)
Simply make a 60-second audio recording OR write in no more than 200 words telling us why you would like to join the project.
You can record this any way you like (smartphone is fine).
Then email your audio or words to email@example.com by 30 September 2020 with your name and phone number. We will be back in touch by Friday 2nd October.
UOSH is a National Lottery Heritage Fund supported project led by the British Library, in partnership with Bristol Culture & Creative Industries and Bristol Community FM (BCfm).
