Thinking about summer plans? If you live in Montreal and are between the ages of 10 and 17, this is your chance to be the media! CKUT 90.3 FM is offering its first ever radio camp, a chance for future journalists, DJs, music enthusiasts, writers, and documentary makers to learn the ins and outs of radio. From the CKUT website:
Over a week long session campers (ages 10-13 and 14-17) will write, produce and act in a radio play, conduct interviews and create short documentaries, learn to dj and at the end of the week will produce and host a live radio show on CKUT!
This is an amazing opportunity for young folks to get involved with something that, for me at least, is inspiring, exciting, edumacational, oh, fine, I’ll just go ahead and say it - life-altering. Participants will learn such skills as how to make sound effects for radio, DJ skills like scratching and beat-matching, how to interview bands and artists, how to put together a documentary or radio play, and sound-editing. Plus you’ll get to hang out with other media-enthusiasts and wave-makers, and meet musicians, DJs, journalists, and all the other usual suspects who make for a vibrant media landscape. Who knows, you could end up karaokeing I’m Too Sexy with members of Les Georges Leningrad and Lesbians on Ecstasy (see image) - anything can happen.
Sessions are one week long and run all summer, from June 29th to August 21st. To find out more information and register, go here.
