Have an idea for a podcast? With the support of the City of Sydney, Audiocraft are running a workshop series designed to strengthen your podcast idea, give you the skills you need to make it, and help you find your audience. 

With 3 x 2 hour workshops, you could choose to brush up on one element of the podcast-making process, or go deep with six hours of professional podcast training. 

We’re running the series twice in April and May 2021.

  • Online (Wednesday nights 6pm - 8pm, April 28, May 5, May 12)

  • In-person at the Idea Space at Darling Square, Sydney (Friday lunchtime, 11am - 1pm, April 30, May 7, May 14)

Are you a young person from a CALD background living, working, or studying in the City of Sydney? We’re running this workshop for free on Saturday May 15. Spots are limited, apply.
