In the summer of 2013 I was happy to co-co-ordinate an inter-generartional radio project called Sound+Story.
Supported by The Centre for Art Tapes and the 4C’s Foundation. The Sound and Story project brought together radio producers, storytellers, documentarians and youth to find new ways of telling stories with sound. Over six weeks of workshops, we taught the basics of audio production, interviewing, and narrative storytelling.  Once we got the basics down, participants got a recorder, a partner in crime and all the support they needed to put together a five minute radio-ready story. Here’s a playlist of what came out:

About:

I am a talker. I spend my days talking with, and listening to, people. These conversations have ended up in print - places like Macleans, The Coast, and Spacing Magazine. I also produce my conversations as radio, and have done this for CBC, NPR and various podcasts.

Right now I'm coordinating a project called StackStories, recording the stories of Halifax's Spring Garden library. I am also a Media Arts Scholar at the Centre for Art Tapes. I edit and promote the books of Invisible Publishing. And in my spare time I host a show called Braidio on CKDU 88.1 where I braid hair live on air.

If you ever feel like talking, I'm all ears
