Un/Learning Space is a newly initiated project by Open Space to support and mentor emerging art creatives. By both learning and unlearning, the workshops that will be available between April-September 2021 will aim to question the classical institutional teaching.
UN/LEARNING SPACE: Introduction to Podcasting with Between Two Curators (Cliff Lauson and Jenn Ellis)
12 April 2021 (Monday), 6:30-8pm
During lockdown last year, curators Cliff Lauson and Jennifer Ellis took to the digital airwaves and started the Between Two Curators podcast as a way of producing creative content and continuing to exchange ideas. In this workshop, Cliff and Jenn will introduce the basics of podcasting, from the tech required to finding your thematic niche. They will offer some tips and tricks learned along the way before leading to questions and discussion.
Note: While these workshops are free we do rely on donations in order to support our workshop leaders financially.
