Vocalo Storytelling Workshop Participants, Summer 2022

Here at Vocalo, we believe change happens from the ground up. It’s crucial to our greater Chicago community to share the stories of those working constantly to uplift their block, neighborhood and city. If you know people who fit the bill and want to help amplify their voices through audio storytelling, we have a perfect opportunity for you! 

After taking a two-year hiatus, Vocalo’s annual Storytelling Workshop is back! Apply for your chance to attend this FREE, in-person workshop. Running on a quarterly basis (Fall/Winter/Summer/Spring), our Storytelling Workshop offers community members from the ages of roughly 18-40 the opportunity to build their audio production skills and tell the stories of our communities.

Most important to note — no experience is required or necessary! All you need is a great, thoughtful pitch and a commitment to attend the sessions.

At each of our seven workshop sessions, you’ll get to work with a Chicago Public Media professional to learn how to produce your own radio piece. Your work will also be distributed through Vocalo’s website and social networks. All workshops will be held from noon to 3 p.m. weekly at 848 E Grand Ave at Navy Pier, with additional weekly drop in session TBD.
