Open Circle Video and Podcasting Workshop
The Circle was so excited to welcome Martha Dixon to run two short courses that taught attendees how to create videos and podcasts just using their smart phone.
Martha has been running training courses for journalists and CSOs around the world for over two decades. She has worked in countries like Algeria, Belarus, Nigeria and Kosovo to strengthen the ability of media to produce free, trusted, and independent journalism that meets public needs.
Whether you work in the charity sector, have a business, or are just an individual that is looking to get your message across, this workshop was a masterclass in creating powerful content using your phone.
This workshop is a collaboration between The Media Circle and The Oxford Circle and all money raised through ticket sales will go directly to The Circle’s Women and Girls Solidarity fund, an appeal set up to support women who have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
