Afternoons with Clare Bowditch is looking for budding reporters to attend Confluence Festival events and discuss and review live on air.
Confluence, A Festival of India in Australia features some of the finest elements from the rich tapestry of Indian culture and civilisation.
From August to November 2016, lovers of culture and entertainment across Australia will have the opportunity to savour an extraordinary range of performances. Audiences in Melbourne will be treated to the virtuosity of Kalakshetra, deemed as among the best dance companies in the world, as well as the classical Odissi and Bharatanatyam dance forms; they will be mesmerised by the life sized puppets by contemporary puppeteer Dadi Pudumjee in Transposition; they will sway to Raghu Dixit's unique mix of world music; they will soak in the spell-binding words and music of Sonam Kalra's Sufi Gospel Project; and more.
What we're looking for
We're not looking for experienced reviewers or commentators, but people who enjoy attending arts performances, are familiar with Indian culture and the Indian community in Australia, and who enjoy having a good chinwag about a performance. We're inviting you to go to your choice of Confluence performances (on us) and then come into the 774 studios to discuss your experience live on air with Clare. There is no payment for being involved.
