For July, Maker Mingle is coming to Dorchester! Join the Association of Independents in Radio and the PRX Podcast Garage at Home.stead bakery & cafe for a night of food, drinks, and audio conversation. Home.stead will stay open through the event to serve wine, beer, coffee, tea, pastries, and other snacks and drinks. We're in the heart of Fields Corner right off the Red Line. You don't have to be a seasoned audio producer to join us: all are welcome!
AIR is a vibrant international network of 1,200 makers powering public media and podcasting. The Boston-based organization identifies, cultivates and deploys storymakers to deepen understanding of and bring enlightenment to people worldwide. Since 2010, AIR’s national incubator, Localore, has engaged more than 400 independent, station-based, and community producers creating work that spans digital, broadcast, and street media platforms — challenging and inspiring other media makers to join in at AIRmedia.org. AIR’s most recent report to the field, “Break Form: Making Stories With and For The People,” provides insights into making community-driven stories and shares AIR’s vision for a more inclusive public media to push beyond convention and embrace new forms of stories.
ABOUT THE PRX PODCAST GARAGE
PRX, the award-winning public media company and founder of Radiotopia, opened the Podcast Garage in August 2016 in Allston, to support the work of local audio and storytelling enthusiasts. Our facilities feature a four-person studio with state-of-the-art recording and mixing equipment and a classroom space for audio producers. We host weekly events on the art and business of podcasting. Our membership also provides independent producers with the time, tools, and community to make their shows.
Our programming is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit www.arts.gov.
