Making Airwaves

“Making Airwaves” is a capacity building program providing opportunity for adults with an intellectual disability to learn radio presentation and production skills to create their own radio show.

As a participant within our Making Airwaves program you’ll receive experience and training in:

  • Using a range of radio production equipment, including using an audio console, computer software, microphones, sound equipment etc.;
  • How to create a theme for your radio show to make it interesting to the audience;
  • Developing a program and structure, with a selection of suitable music;
  • Researching people of interest and learning interviewing skills for live interviews;
  • Production – learning how to put it all together, including how to podcast;
  • Plus, a highlight of the course, the DJ workshop – where we invite professional DJs to share their skills and experience, and participants learn how to mix and scratch.

The benefits of our Making Airwaves program include:

  • Having a voice! From time to time our radio program is also broadcasted on a local radio station which provides a voice for intellectually disabled adults, allowing them to discuss their interests, hobbies and challenges or issues within the community;
  • The opportunity to learn new skills and capacity building to further develop language, literacy, and numeracy skills;
  • Building social and communication skills, confidence and self esteem;
  • Creativity, this program is a great outlet to do things differently and express new ideas; and
  • An opportunity to meet new people and have fun!
