Community Media/Waiheke Island/Podcasting Project
The Waiheke Island Podcasting Project will assist individuals in the production of audio content that is by, for, and about Waiheke and the people who live there. This content will be made available online as podcasts and may also be broadcast on Waiheke Radio.
The Waiheke Island Podcasting Project will:
- enable members of the Waiheke public to develop podcasting style content that may be broadcast and made freely available on the internet;
- produce podcasts of between 5 and 30 minutes that may form part of the regular programming of Waiheke Radio
- create a supportive environment to provide continued help, assistance and guidance for people in the community to contribute to the digital audio heritage of the island
The first set of hands-on workshops were held from March 4th - April 1st at the Waiheke Adult Education Centre.
The project has a website that can be found here: http://waihekepodcasting.ning.com/
