What Works? Engaging People with a Disability in Community Radio @ the CBAA Conference 2017

Session time:  9:30am, November 11, 2017.  Gold Coast Convention Centre.

Kim Stewart (4ZZZ), Steve Richardson (4RPH) and Paul Price (4RPH) will be presenting a workshop & discussion on what can work in engaging more people with a disability (PWD) in community radio.

Since 2015 Kim Stewart has been running radio groups with PWD, in conjunction with an array of community groups including the Community Living Association, Nundah Activities Centre, West End Community House, ABC Brisbane and community radio 4ZZZ.

In 2017 she interviewed PWD from around Australia for her doctoral research to find out what worked for them: how did they get involved in community radio, what helped, what didn’t. Kim puts forward a model, based on those interviews, of how community radio might move forward to include more PWD on air and in our station communities.

Steve Richardson is a radio producer with over 20 years at 4RPH in Brisbane.  He produces Access All Areas, a regular interview based show on disability matters.  Steve is the Queensland Representative for the RPH network.  He is blind.

Paul Price is a board member, producer and volunteer at 4RPH in Brisbane.   He works as an announcer, schedules programming and has a degree in Information Technology that has allowed him to help 4RPH progress their technology.  He is blind.
