If you plan to be at PRPD, please join us for the “Taking Public Media to the Streets – MQ2” panel on Wednesday, September 16th from 11:15am to 12:30pm. Presenters on the panel include MQ2’s Sue Schardt and Julie Drizin.
Panel Description: the eight Makers Quest 2.0 producers are fresh from five months of inventing new ways to harness the power of new technology, social media and traditional broadcast/storytelling to engage audiences in new ways. We’ll introduce some of these most energized producers and editors from their broadcast incubators. We listen/look at their work, discuss what they learned, and experience new approaches to the audio craft they’re pioneering.
Also appearing are MQ2 Incubators Davar Ardalan of NPR’s Weekend Edition and Nishat Kurwa of Youth Radio, as well as grantees Queena Kim & collaborator Tanya Jo Miller of CyberFrequencies, Kara Oehler & collaborator Ann Hepperman of Mapping Main Street, and Anita Johnson of Beyond the Odds.
