Podcasting and Navigating Archives

with Erin MacIndoe Sproule & Nick Richbell 

This workshop series is Co-presented by Ed Video and The University of Waterloo Library 




Join us for a workshop series led by Erin MacIndoe Sproule, Guelph-based media artist, podcast creator and documentary filmmaker.  This workshop series will introduce you to the process of creating a podcast using archival materials. Erin's recent work, The Ghost of Thomas Lacey which is currently being exhibited at AFTERLIFE at THEMUSEUM in downtown Kitchener will be explored from the projects inception to exhibition.  We encourage anyone with an interest in podcasting, working with archival materials in their audiovisual projects or creating immersive exhibitions to come check out this workshop. The workshop will explore how to craft a compelling story for your audience and will touch upon the technical side of creating a podcast.  There will be an opportunity for workshop attendees to discuss their own podcast ideas and ask questions. Session Two will focus on research in archival collections and navigating archives with Nick Richbell. This session will explore how archives are collected, preserved, and made accessible to the public and includes a tour of the Library’s Special Collections & Archives. A chance to view some original, primary source material and rare books!


All participants will receive complementary THEMUSEUM Wednesday night passes to experience The Ghost of Thomas Lacey
