Toronto Library Stories Podcast Jam

January 21, 2020
Toronto Reference Library

An exclusive, hands-on, free learning opportunity where participants will be led by media experts to create impactful mini-podcasts Do you want to learn about podcasting from experts by...actually podcasting? Are you looking for a way to expand your network? Do you have a story you want to tell? Are you interested in design thinking? Can you commit to one whirlwind week of storytelling? Look no further. This is the event for you. *** THE EVENT The library means many different things to so many different people. A place for inspiration. Somewhere to meet new friends, to receive and give guidance. Somewhere to get cozy with a cup of tea and get lost. A place where the imagination rules and the possibilities are boundless. Through a series of exercises led by experts in design thinking and audio storytelling, participants will work in groups to create personal, impactful, 4-5 min podcasts about the role that the library has played in their lives. The pieces will be played in front of a live audience and a panel of storytellers in an evening recording session for the Toronto Public Library’s Shelve Under Podcast. Following the listening session, a discussion will follow about the role of the library in our lives, with a small, celebratory reception and refreshments. All participants will be entered into a raffle for a prize. The purpose of the jam is to expose participants to the process of design thinking and storytelling, and the medium of podcasting. This exciting event celebrates the launch of the Toronto Public Library’s Audio Storytelling Field kits which aim to make audio storytelling accessible. Participants will be given access to all of the tools necessary to bring their stories to life. This is a two part event (Jan 21, 2-5pm & Jan 28, 6-8:30pm) with one week in between. Participants will be expected to work on their podcasts during the period in between both events. Limited space!
