Audiocraft Podcast Festival

to
Expand your sound at Audiocraft 2020. 

This year we’re lifting our gaze to the sonic horizon and thinking about how to make our audio worlds more expansive – how to take a chance on that story that might come to nothing; to draw an entire story out of bird song; to broaden the relationships we think of as foundational to our audio making.

With sessions from Wendy Zukerman (Science Vs), Matthew Lieber (Spotify/Gimlet), Kathy Tu & Tobin Low (Nancy), Becky Ripley & Timothy X Atack (Forest 404), Johanna Bell & Rocket Bretherton (Birds Eye View) and more.

This is a chance to come together with other audio makers from Australia and around the world. There’ll be meet-ups, one-on-one chats, collective recordings and lots of opportunity to meet new collaborators and connect with other creatives. 

Get your tickets now for full access to the Festival. Times are in AEST, but we welcome podcasters from around the world. Make sure to check what time to set your alarm!
