Week 12 Lecture

You’ve made it to the end!  Well the last lecture, at least.  Well done, it’s been a busy semester.  As you’re all busy working on assessment tasks for this course (and others), this week’s lecture is just a recap of some perspectives that we’ve encountered throughout the course, with some comments here and there to give context.  Being a Prezi, you may need to update your flash player to view, but your browser should alert you if this is the case.

If you’re into Video & Photography…

I’m sure you’ve all heard of Melbourne’s community radio station Triple R, some of you may be regular listeners; they are Australia’s largest community radio station with an audience of nearly half a million people per week.  They are on the look out for people interested in producing video and photography work on a volunteer basis, which you can sign up for here.  If you don’t have much experience, don’t worry – enthusiasm goes a long way here, and getting involved is a great way to learn more about your craft.

I have worked on some of their projects as a volunteer in the past, and can not speak highly enough about the experience.  If you’re in any way interested in music, film, video and photography, then this is an incredible place to become involved in.  One of the biggest challenges of working within media is finding like-minded people who support and value your skills, knowledge and ability.  At RRR you will meet many creative collaborators who are genuinely passionate about what they do, your efforts will be greatly appreciated, and you will be contributing to a world-renowned radio station.  This is a valuable thing to do early on in your career, provides an excellent base to work off, and looks very good on your CV.  At the very least, sign up and find out more, it will be well worth it!

Alasdair Foster Lecture: Creating shared culture – Art and the Pro-am

In my workshops a couple of weeks back, I mentioned attending a lecture by Alasdair Foster, who (amongst a list of notable achievements and experience) is currently a doctoral researcher in the Office of the Pro Vice-Chancellor Learning and Teaching, Monash University, Melbourne.

The lecture was titled ‘CREATING SHARED CULTURE – ART AND THE PRO-AM’, and provided a great insight into the development of maker culture and the historical context that this emerged out of (similarly to Bolter’s article on the entanglement of art & politics throughout the 20th century).  For any of you interested in ‘professional-amateur’ practice, or looking for useful research into online communities and content creation, you should check out his work.
