CMTO Pathways Trainer Kristyn Lindsay travelled to PAW Media and Communications at Yuendumu in June to deliver two days of music interviewing and advanced presentation training to broadcasters and musicians working at the station.
The training included content creation, exploring creativity, and bringing the emotional value of music into an interview.
The broadcasters and musicians shared some of their music and experiences with Kristyn and there was plenty of information exchanged amongst the group.
The training included learning how to find music on the AMRAP platform and load their own content through the use of their mobile phones.
Interview skills in the studio and on zoom recorders were also part of the training and the big event was a live zoom interview with Richard Frankland to talk about one of his new songs, ‘Who will sing my songs’.
CMTO feels privileged to have been guided by PAW to deliver training with emphasis on Warlpiri language and in alignment with cultural protocols and safety when working with communities practicing strong kinship laws.
Thank you very much to all of the PAW staff and community who participated in the project and helped make the training happen. A special thank you to Richard Frankland and Walpiri Elder Ned Hargraves for cultural support and guidance.
