The National Ethnic and Multicultural Broadcasters’ Council (NEMBC) have teamed up with the CMTO to deliver content creation skills to a wide range of culturally and linguistically diverse media makers.
The NEMBC Multimedia Project sees a number of media collectives coming together to amplify the voices of culturally and linguistically diverse groups.
These collectives include proud Pacific Islander peoples, Afghan & African women and Housing Estate communities (NEC).
The Pacific Islander media collective attended their first round of training in late November and will continue to meet over several months.
The project has been led by Reece Lamshed (NEMBC), with coordination and development by CMTO trainer Anita Michalski and CMTO Pathways Training Manager, Mikaela Ford.
The training covers:
- Writing for text, audio and video
- Codes of practice & Media law
- Audio radio production techniques
- Video production techniques (using smartphones)
- Audio presentation techniques
- An understanding of social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, etc)
- An understanding of digital and multimedia platforms (SoundCloud, MoveTiles. Radio App distribution, radio streaming, podcasting systems)
- How to access community radio and develop own programs, including visits to a range of stations
The CMTO have called upon a number of our very experienced trainers to facilitate the sessions, including Anita Michalski, Chris Yates, Kween G, Zain Nabi, Bukola Esin (pictured) & Maddy Macfarlane.
Given the current climate the NEMBC Multimedia Project is being delivered virtually, allowing participants to take part across the country.
We are excited to be working with NEMBC to deliver this training during a very challenging time for the community sector, and we look forward to sharing the work of these diverse media makers with you in the near future.
