Stories Summer Institute 2019 is a wrap!

The annual Stories Summer Institute was June 17-21, 2019. During the Institute, participants crafted stories with instruction and guidance from audio radio producers and a guest folklorist instructor. Participants enrolled from education and nonprofits backgrounds and created four unique audio stories about "Women in the Austin Music Scene." The intensive workshop covered radio production, such as interviewing, logging, and sound, and also the folklore tradition of storytelling.
