Supporting new voices and new ideas in Australian podcasting.
Signal Boost is an initiative offering up to $10,000 in tailored mentorship, practical support, tools and professional development for aspiring Australian podcasters. Recipients will be paired with an experienced mentor, provided with equipment and access to software to help them realise their audio goals, and will attend a series of intensive workshops led by some of Australia’s leading podcast and radio industry professionals.
Different from many ‘podcast incubator’ programmes, Signal Boost’s focus is on investing in the craft of working with sound. The Wheeler Centre will work with each participant to support their creative growth and develop their audio skills, and assist them with building a network of peers, gaining insight into the industry and accessing a range of professional opportunities. Throughout the programme, participants will create paid audio works to be displayed on the Wheeler Centre website. All participants will retain all copyright ownership of any works they make.
