NPR (National Public Radio) i LAist Studies announced this morning the creation of an accelerator to support content creators in audio formats of Latin origin. Named after Hey: The Lab for Latinx Creators and aims to seek and find creative talent to develop and promote it.
In a statement, Yolanda Sangweni, NPR’s senior director of programming, explained that the alliance “will allow them to raise Latin voices by providing resources and training to creators who are just beginning their careers.” Through six-week distance workshops, the selected talent will work on developing new programming ideas focused on the experience of being Latin in the United States. Participants will learn how to develop and present a pilot program, and will also receive financial support to cover the work and time spent on the project. The ideas will be presented to a small audience and some could be considered developed and transformed into real programs.
“Good ideas need space and tools to make them come true, that’s exactly what Hello “It’s the perfect place to go from project to release, with the full support of the best audio storytelling professionals,” said Antonia Ceredizo, executive producer at LAist Studios.
