Podcasts / Compelling Stories / Audience Engagement
What is it about?
What’s your story? And how do you share it with your audience? In this session Hannah will explore how podcasts, as an increasingly popular audio medium, have provided arts organisations a powerful new tool for storytelling. You’ll learn why storytelling is so important, why podcasting is so well-suited to arts storytelling, and how to transform your own information and content into stories that resonate.
Discover how to identify the most compelling stories within your organisation and how to turn a list of facts into a dynamic story. You’ll leave with an understanding of how to better engage your audiences outside the constraints of a physical location. Get ready to develop stories you want to tell — and ones your audiences want to hear.
What will I gain?
— An understanding of how storytelling can be used to effectively convey information
— An understanding of how podcasting can better engage audiences
— Skills to think in terms of stories, not facts
Who is it for?
