10 a.m. – 4 p.m.: "Capturing Community Voices Workshop"
Cairo Public Library
15 Railroad Ave
Cairo, NY
Join Wave Farm Artist-in-residence Laura Hadden and Tennessee Watson for this public workshop focused on the concept of vox populi in association with WGXC's Town Recorder initiative. Pre-registration is required, and limited to 12 participants, for this free workshop. Email Galen Joseph-Hunter gjh [at] free103point9.org, or call (518) 622-2598 to secure your spot.

The "Capturing Community Voices Workshop" will assist participants in collaboratively designing and producing a short radio segment featuring interviews with members of the local community edited into a collage of voices responding to a common question. Participants will learn how to formulate questions, conduct interviews, and be guided through computer tutorials and techniques that enable them, with facilitator support, to edit their own segments.

Laura Hadden is an independent media producer who spent the last three years producing projects for the storytelling organization The Moth in New York City.
