How can radio stories change the narrative about workers? In this workshop, we will share audio stories from Los Angeles’ garment district, which demonstrate storytelling as a powerful tool to demystify complex issues, represent data, break down assumptions, and build understanding. Together we will explore components of a strong story, learn the basics of audio recording and stitch together our own stories. Participants will develop a 3-5 minute radio story related to their work.
