Summer Training at CDS / AIR stipends

Love these folks and am saving my pennies to do one of their summer programs. Details about this year's offerings below. -Mia
PS: And if you're into this sort of thing but aren't yet an AIR member, you should be.

Summer's coming, and if you're thinking about coming to Durham, NC for "radio camp for grownups," it's time to think about registering. There are just a few spots left for Hearing is Believing, our introductory course, July 14-20. Making It Sing, our August 5-10 intensive for more experienced producers, is filling too but still has a number of spaces available. Also, between the two on the calendar, our friends at Big Shed are again offering the Artist's Retreat, a less-structured chance to come and get work done on a project alongside other creative types — and to enjoy homemade ice cream and singing on the porch. 
AIR is offering members a $100 travel stipend to attend our advanced radio camp, Making it Sing. Five stipends are available, first come, first served. To apply for the AIR stipend: If you know someone who's NOT an AIR member who might benefit from this opportunity, tell em to join AIR. 
I'm delighted to announce that the brilliant (AIRster) Sean Cole will be our guest instructor/presenter for Hearing is Believing (the intro course). Shea Shackelford of Big Shed (another AIRster, of course) will be here along with me for both Hearing is Believing and Making It Sing. 
To register or to read more about all these courses, and a few others offered by CDS in video and writing, go here: 
Any questions, write to, or to me off-list.
