Gender diversity in front of and behind the screen: How can multi-media creative practices offer new ways to engage with diversity in media production?

Exploring how a range of multi-media creatives practices like documentary, YouTube, film festivals and podcasts can be used to undertake socially-engaged research and media production about gender and diversity, We Make Stuff: Film & Social Context is the next in the Centre for Media Research’s public engagement event series.

On the day

The event will consist of presentations and screenings delving into current projects through which different media and production practices - spanning fiction film, documentary, podcasts and festivals - have been used to conduct and engage with issues of gender, diversity, and infertility in the media.

Presentations will be followed by an interactive podcast-making workshop, where attendees will learn the do’s and don'ts of making a podcast before working together to create a live podcast debating how the podcast process can be a new way of exploring diversity in media production. Attendees will also get the chance to explore new ways of using podcasts in their own projects. The workshop will be led by Edward Tristram, Lecturer in Post Production Audio.
