Report from the 35th annual National Campus & Community Radio Conference

Report from the 35th annual National Campus & Community Radio Conference

ncra_conf

In early June of this year, I had the opportunity to attend the 35th annual National Campus & Community Radio Conference (NCRC), hosted at the University of Ottawa by CHUO 89.1 FM.

The event consisted of a week’s worth of workshops, socials, caucuses, performances, screenings, and more—all related to campus and community radio. I was very glad to see a diverse array of NCRA member stations represented at this event; I had the pleasure of meeting radio enthusiasts from Smithers, Ryerson University, Georgina Island, Peterborough, Abbotsford, and many other cities, towns & communities across Canada.

Every workshop I attended was educational and entertaining, though a couple stand out as being exceptionally great! I really enjoyed one workshop about the importance of community audio archives (Matt Jarvis, Trent Radio), as well as a workshop about making your radio production ooze with creativity (Haydn Watters, CKDU & CBC). One of the social events took the shape of a Radio Cabaret—a listening party and discussion focusing on radio production and appreciation, with Veronica Simmonds & Chris Berube. I thought it was a great idea for a social event, and hope to host one in Powell River sometime. I’m grateful to CJMP for supporting my attendance at this event, and I look forward to engaging with the local and broader grassroots radio community in order to share my newfound knowledge and my stronger-than-ever passion for community radio!

Next years’ conference will be in Abbotsford, and I’m sure it’ll be a great one. I sure look forward to it, and I encourage you to think about going as well! 😀

Keep it airwavy,

–Ioni Wais
