We couldn't wait anylonger! We are glad - actually over the moon - to be among the Culture of Solidarity Fund grantees!!
Thanks to the European Cultural Foundation we will be able to make an idea we've been discussing about with many friends and colleagues, true: a mentorship program for audio producers, a network of European professional to grow with and build diversity in audio production.
Here there are the premises:
With the exception of rare cases the erosion of public investment in authorial radio production leads to a low disposition for experimentation and a significant reduction in new commissions. On a wider European ground this means few educational programs and an increasing homogenization of formats.
Here it is our idea:
Radio Papesse wants to respond to this lack of programs for creative authorship by presenting YASS! a 5-month distance mentorship for emerging and experienced producers of any age who come with demonstrated audio storytelling experience. You are so sound! provides European and Mediterranean audio producers and podcasters with competences and resources to advance in their projects and careers. Solidarity needs new narratives and it asks us to learn to listen to other voices and perspectives.
YASS! is promoted by Radio Papesse in the frame of Lucia Festival and please, stay tuned, we'll come back soon to present you our partners and to give more information about HOW TO APPLY and PARTICIPATE to the program!
Check HERE the extraordinary people and projects that got funded! Looking forward to finding out more about all of them!
