Audio documentary is a unique living being. It is neither pure sound art, nor solid journalism, nor public storytelling. It is something in between.


In this workshop of audio storytelling we will invite participants to play with documentary sound medium and accompany on your creative journey. We will try to find out how to use the audio narrative format to tell your own, your friends' or each other's stories in a compelling and authentic way.

Over the course of four meetings, participants will learn about the variety of documentary audio narratives, learn how to make high-quality recordings, learn interviewing and other techniques, and practice constructing an engaging, visual documentary narrative from different types of audio scenes. At the end of the mentorship course, each of the participants will be able to present the work produced during the programme at the closing event of the festival.
