This Is Where I Am – SoundCard from K-Town, a Radio Project

August 25, 2015 - August 30, 2015

Free

This is a radio program that delivers personal thoughts of participants in the neighborhood of Kennedy Town. Breaking down the imaginary wall between the University and the neighborhood and allowing students to experience the community are two of the major goals. This is all about the process and the experience students can record when they are wandering around Kennedy Town. Students are encouraged to develop their own content, their own route, their own way and style to present their content. Ways to present the content are not restricted and can be explored further in the workshop and discussions.

Suggested ideas: interview with local people, food trip, gradual change in neighborhood (MTR), natural scenic spots etc.

Students will be formed into pairs or groups, with at least one local Cantonese-speaking student in each pair/ group. Each student is expected to create his/ her own oral/ aural Postcard to tell his/ her personal content that is around 3 to 3.5-minute long (shorter content which tells amazing stories is welcome as well). Smartphones are suggested tools to record. Students’ productions may be broadcast on different outlets (e.g. radio programs and online media sites).
