MPR News Radio Camp

Radio Camp
Challenge bias. Change the media narrative. MPR News trains BIPOC youth to tell the stories of their lives and communities.

MPR News uses the power of storytelling to train diverse Minnesota youth tell the stories of their lives and communities. Students will get firsthand exposure to field recording, interviewing, writing stories and voicing their own scripts. The expectation is that youths will create an audio story by the time the week is over.

The theme of the 2023 camp was media and the portrayal of Indigenous people. Twin Cities-area students spent a week in late June at MPR News listening to Indigenous leaders in the law, arts and media describe their work and mission make sure Native lives are accurately reflected.
