ASPIRING WOMEN OF COLOR PODCASTERS (free training and resources) by Bear Guerra

Via Spotify:

“While women of color have been breaking ground in podcasting, we know there’s more work to be done and more voices to be heard. That’s why Spotify created Sound Up, an immersive accelerator to create space and provide resources for new podcasters. You don’t need any experience; all you need is an idea.

As a part of Sound Up, you’ll develop your idea through a free, weeklong program covering technical production, storytelling through audio, marketing your podcast, and developing the skills and confidence to create your podcast pilot.

At the end of the week, you’ll have the opportunity to pitch your idea to a panel of industry experts, who will then select 3 participants to each receive $10,000 to fund the production of five episodes of your podcast idea.”

DEADLINE: June 21.

ASPIRING WOMEN OF COLOR PODCASTERS (incubator) by Bear Guerra

Via House of Pod:

From the Margins to the Center is the first podcast incubator of its kind in Denver, Colorado.

This month-long program will take place at  House of Pod in Denver, Colorado for 28 contact hours of podcast instruction over four weeks. The program will include a keynote session with  Juleyka Lantigua-Williams, who founded an independent production company, weekly classes, a one-year membership to the House of Pod recording studio, and access to open drop-in sessions. Additionally, participants will be paired with leading women producers of color as their mentors.

The most promising producer from the program, as selected by the AMPED Board, will be eligible for a $5,000 grant to support the first season of their podcast. The incubator will be free for all participants, and childcare during each class will be included. Housing and transportation will not be included, so the program may be more convenient, though not limited to, aspiring local producers.”

DEADLINE: May 9.

WOMEN STORYTELLERS IN LATIN AMERICA (fellowship) by Bear Guerra

Via Open Society Foundations:

“With the goal of supporting the next generation of feminist activists in Latin America, the Open Society Foundations’ Youth Exchange and Women’s Rights Program are joining together to create the Young Feminist Leaders Fellowship.

The Young Feminist Leaders Fellowships will support dynamic youth activists, aged 22 to 30 and based in Latin America, who want to launch a project of their own design to foster a more just, inclusive, accessible, and feminist future for Latin America. Successful projects will reflect on the upcoming 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, address current realities, and propose a specific and detailed idea for advancing women’s rights and gender justice.

This 12-month fellowship program explicitly recognizes the threats of discrimination to an open society and seeks to create a leadership pipeline to promote young people who have personal, direct experiences with interpersonal and institutional prejudice.”

DEADLINE:  May 3.
